Chewy pumpkin snickerdoodles

From Thanksgiving.com
Yields: 24 cookies
½ cup unsalted butter
⅓ cup lightly packed brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
⅓ cup canned pumpkin (not the entire can, not pumpkin pie filling)
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon each nutmeg and ground cloves
½ teaspoon allspice
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
1½ cups white all-purpose flour

Optional: 1 cup white chocolate chips
For rolling the cookies:

4 tablespoons white sugar
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl beat together the room temperature butter, brown sugar and white sugar until creamy.
Beat in the vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and salt.
In another bowl toss together the baking soda, cream of tartar and flour.
Add wet and dry ingredients and mix until just combined. If desired, add in white chocolate chips.
Roll dough into balls, and then roll the balls in a bowl containing the white sugar and ground cinnamon mixture.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake 13-15 minutes. Slightly under-baking these cookies yield soft and tender cookies.

Snickerdoodles always remind me of a special someone; may all you and your special someone(s) have a sweet and holy Christmas!
