Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodle Cookies

The other day I was at Target picking up paper towels and coffee creamer and ... somehow ended up in the Halloween section of the store.  Does that happen to anyone else or is that just me?!  Anyways, I was skimming over the seasonal baking items and saw a box of pumpkin cookie mix and knew exactly what I wanted to make with it.

I really like giving twists to classic recipes (like this, this and this) and I thought with pumpkin spice season in full swing, that now would be the perfect time to upgrade the traditional snickerdoodle cookie.  The pumpkin and seasonal spices in the cookie mix are perfect with the addition of smooth white chocolate and warm cinnamon sugar ... these cookies are hit in my book!

Snickerdoodle White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
{yield: 24 cookies}

1 box Pillsbury Perfectly Pumpkin cookie mix
½ cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 egg
½ cup white chocolate chips
½ cup granulated sugar
½ tsp. ground cinnamon

Start by preheating your over to 375 degree.  In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and cinnamon and set aside.  Then in a separate medium size bowl, combine the pumpkin cookie mix, melted butter and egg and mix until just combined.

Once combined, add in the white chocolate chips and mix into the dough.

Using a cookie scoop or spoon, measure out 2 tbsp. of dough and roll into a ball using the palm of your hands.  Then roll the ball into the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on an ungreased baking sheet, about 2 inches apart from each other.

Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set, turing the baking sheet halfway through.  If the tops look slightly undercooked, thats okay as they will set while cooling.  Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

These cookies are amazing served warm from the oven, but you can create the same taste by zapping them in the microwave for 5-10 seconds ... that is if you have any left over.  Enjoy!
