WIAW: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles


Every year, I make a batch of Joy the Baker’s super soft pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. This year, I decided to find another recipe. There are tons out there. I wanted to give this a twist by combining it with my favorite cookie, snickerdoodles. All the recipes I found made 3-4 dozen cookies or used white chocolate chips or didn’t use cream of tartar, which I bought just to make snickerdoodles.

My little cousin slept over, we did work, watched movies, ate sushi, and baked. These turned out fantastic, probably one of the better cookies I’ve ever made. They’re not too soft but soft enough and they’re just the right size.
