This is just a twist on the classic Snickerdoodle cookie. Use orange sprinkles instead of the cinnamon sugar and push in a candy pumpkin right when you pull them out of the oven.

Have kids? Grab them and make these cookies together this week. My kids loved helping rolls the dough balls in sugar!

Makes 24-36

1/2 cup margarine (soft)
1.5 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tarter

Orange sprinkles or sugar (mix a drop or two of food coloring with a fes TBS sugar)
Candy Pumpkins

Snickerdoodles - use 2TBS sugar & 1 tsp cinnamon

1. Mix soft maragrine in bowl for 30 seconds.
2. Add the remaining ingredients.
3. Cover bowl and cill about 1 hour.
4. Roll dough into 1 inch balls.
5. Roll in sugar or sprinkles.
6. Bake in 375 degree oven for 9-11 minutes.
7. Gently push a candy pumpkin into the top of each cookie after removing from oven.


Someone decided to help me with the picture taking!! I let her suck on that pumpkin for bit before taking it away.

It was much too big for her little mouth, but who can resist a candy pumpkin?!

Question: Which do you like more, candy corn or the pumpkins?

They've got to have almost identical ingredients of sugar, sugar, and more sugar, but I LOVE the pumpkins!

What gets your vote?! Pumpkins or Candy Corn?

I thought these Halloween cards would be fun to send to your grandkids, neices, nephews or cousins!


  1. Oh yum yum! I am defiantly going to make those this season!! Thank you for sharing.
    I have givin you an award :)


  2. Just made for my dd preschool class. Sugar is down twice. I think you meant one to be flour and one to be sugar.

  3. Thanks for catching that Donna . . . you're right. I've fixed it now!

  4. They came out so yummy. I will definately make these again. Thanks again for sharing.
