Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies With Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting is an irresistible fall treat. Proceed your mouth with caution because these cookies are dangerously addictive!
The first time I heard someone mention a snickerdoodle I asked, Snickerdoodle? What kind of dog is that? I imagined a brown fluffy dog that resembled a muppet. I never made snickerdoodles growing up so I thought it was a valid question. To everyone else, my comment required an obligatory eye roll.
My childhood cookie making experience consisted of chocolate chip, sugar, and peanut butter. Obviously, those three cookies are amazing. But, chocolate chip cookies are my absolute favorite. It’s difficult for me to cheat on something I adore. However, it’s time for me to put on my big girl britches and try something new.
I’m sorry chocolate. You know how much I love you. Given the ample amount of time we spend together, my yearning for you should be evident. However, I’ve met someone new. Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies With Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting.
Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies With Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting are heavenly. Eating these cookies feels like you’re sinking your teeth into a soft buttery pillow that’s been rolled in cinnamon sugar. The cookies are crunchier on the outside and soft in the middle. The pumpkin cream cheese frosting gives the snickerdoodle subtle notes of tang.
I learned snickerdoodle cookies are traditionally made with cream of tartar. If you’re unaware, cream of tartar is a dry, powdery, acidic byproduct of wine production. Cream of tartar activates the alkaline in baking soda so it’s used a lot in baking recipes. In fact, cream of tartar mixed with baking soda is baking powder. Since cream of tartar is acidic, it gives snickerdoodles a twinge of tangy flavor.
I didn’t have cream of tartar on hand when I tested this recipe so I supplemented the tangy flavor with a pumpkin cream cheese frosting.
I toned down the sugar in the pumpkin cream cheese frosting because the cookies are rather sweet. The sweet and hints of tang balance the recipe and make for a tasty cookie. I told Kieran to take the remaining batch of cookies to work, otherwise, I’d eat them all in one sitting!
Kieran’s co-workers gave this cookie recipe rave reviews and I can see why they’re dangerously addicting!
Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies With Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting are a fun autumn dessert. Just the smell of these cookies baking is to die for. The aroma of cinnamon sugar will waft through your house thus making your mouth water.
Whether you are making these cookies for yourself, your kids, or for a crowd, they are sure to be a tremendous hit!
