Once again, I know March isn't exactly pumpkin season. I should be making something Springy or Easter-ish. But I have the upcoming joy of moving soon, so I am in pantry cleaning mode. I had a can of pumpkin that survived Fall, but needed to go. So I flipped through some cookbooks and found this recipe for pumpkin snickerdoodles that I hadn't tried yet. I was preparing desserts for a party I was going to (the same one I made Twix caramel popcorn for) so I thought these would be perfect. This way I could use up my pumpkin, but my husband couldn't complain about having to eat a bunch of pumpkin stuff. He's not pumpkin's biggest fan.
So I whipped up a batch and took them to our party hot out of the oven. When we got there, the main course was still cooking. I set my tray of cookies out where some people were sitting. I kid you not, half of them were gone before we even starting eating supper. So I guess you could say they were a hit!
