Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

Can you believe August is almost over and September is right around the corner. The temps are still warm, but there are signs that Fall is coming. We have seen some trees changing colors and leaves on the ground, which make so happy. I remember my mom saying every time she saw the first red leaf on the ground, Fall is coming. Which is funny because Isabella saw leaves on the ground and said Fall is coming.

I made these cookies with the kiddos. We had fun taking turns adding the ingredients, scooping the dough and rolling the cookies in the topping mixture. The more the kids are in the kitchen, the more comfortable they are. Isabella is getting really good at baking. Lele is doing much better scooping flour out correctly. JJ is getting better at not making a big mess, so that is good.

Hubs tried these cookies and said they are the best snickerdoodles he has ever had. So I hope you love them as much as we are loving them in our house. The kids are gobbling these cookies up.
