White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

One of my favorite things to do is experiment in the kitchen with new recipes. I love mixing and matching and often find myself adding certain ingredients to old recipes to make new ones. It’s so fun and can sometimes be a bad thing or a good thing (usually it’s a good thing.) 😉

Thankfully, I was experimenting this week and the result was amazing. I thought I’d try to make some Pumpkin Snickerdoodles but I didn’t want them to be toooo pumpkin-y and wanted to change things up even more and make them White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles. Sounds pretty amazing, right? Well, not to toot my own horn, but they were pretty darn delicious!

I think the picture may speak for itself:

Um yeah… pretty delicious!! I decided to use one of my favorite Snickerdoodle recipes for the base. I also decided to throw in some White Chocolate Chips inspired by THIS recipe. The pumpkin pie spice was also added to give it that PUMPKIN flavor most people love. The result was a delicious combination of White Chocolate, Pumpkin and Cinnamon (Sounds like a new soap from Bath & Body Works, huh?) LOL.

If you like those 3 ingredients, I promise you will love this cookie recipe. 😉

Soft and yummy White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles


(NOTE: If you don’t like white chocolate leave the chips out… if you want it more pumpkin-y add more pumpkin spice.) 😀

I’m a little excited to think that I still have a few of these cookies sitting in the kitchen right now (since the hubby isn’t in town to eat them all – lol!)

I’d love to hear if you try the recipe out – it is perfect for Fall!!

    Pumpkin spice = pumpkin pie spice? Or where do you find it if not?

    I love snickerdoodle cookies. But these look twice as good. I am headed to the store and plan on having them with some Expresso tonight. Thanks

    Hi there!

    I’m confused by the 2nd step in your instructions, it says add eggs, vanilla, and cream together, but cream isn’t listed in your ingredients! How much cream needs to be added? I’d like to make these! =]

  9. 22

    These sound amazing! What would you recommend as a substitute for shortening? Thank you!

  10. 25

    These look fantastic! Do you think I could use all butter, or will they turn out better with shortening?

  11. 27

    these sound to die for!

    I just made these! They are fantastic!!! :)

  13. 31

    Am confused…on the first and second step you say to add cream? Is that mean the cream of tartar?

  14. 34

    I made these this morning. I didn’t have that much shortening, so I used what I had-maybe 2 tablespoons and then I added half a cup of pumpkin puree. I followed the directions the rest of the way except I had to bake them a couple of minutes longer. They are delicious and quite pumkiny.

      So glad you made them and liked them. I think Pumpkin Puree is a great substitute for the shortening – great idea!

  15. 36

    I just made these and knew they would be fabulous before I even baked them. I *may* have tasted the dough before baking. They didn’t disappoint – they were fantastic!

  16. 38

    Im so confused in the ingredients it says 3tsps of pumpkin pie spice them says again 1tsp?? So is it 2 or one or 3?

  17. 39

    These sound delicious! I was just wondering if the shortening had to be butter flavor or can I just use regular shortening? Will it affect the taste at all if I use regular shortening?

  18. 40

    Maybe I am blind but how many cookies does this recipe make? Thanks!

  19. 42

    What does the TB stand for? Tablespoon
    Also sugar it asks for 4TB seema very little.

  20. 44

    Oooh! The PERFECT way to welcome fall!
