Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

The company Randal works at holds a United Way bakesale every year, and as soon as Randal told me about it I started searching through all my favourite food blogs for things I could make. One of the first things I found were these pumpkin snickerdoodles at annies eats

3¾ cups all-purpose flour
1½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
¾ cup pumpkin puree
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract

For the coating:
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground ginger
Dash of allspice

Preheat the oven to 350

In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg, set aside.

With an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until fluffy, beat in the egg, vanilla and pumpkin puree.

With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients. Cover and chill the dough for 1 hour.

Combine the coating ingredients in a bowl, roll the dough into balls and roll in the coating mixture, place on baking sheet 2 inches apart and flatten slightly.

Bake for 10-12 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
