These pumpkin spice snickerdoodles with caramel are a fun variation on a popular theme. An old classic with a fun pumpkin spice twist!
It is October so that means it can officially be pumpkin spice season. I cheated a bit and started a little early when I shared that Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Roll Cake. But if you’ve tried it, I know you have forgiven me!
Pumpkin spice snickerdoodles are the perfect way to kick off the pumpkin spice season. I rolled my favorite snickerdoodle recipe in some pumpkin pie spice and sugar. And I added caramel bits to the recipe to give it even more fall goodness!
I’ve been making this snickerdoodle recipe for years. It was my son and his friends favorite treat when they were in high school and there was always a batch when they’d come over to play video games or hang out.
Those boys are now all grown up and married but I’m pretty sure they’d all love a batch of these pumpkin spice snickerdoodles. It’s a fun way to dress up an old family favorite.
