Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles

I have been into fall baking and boy did the house smell great after these were done baking!
Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles

makes about 2 dozen large cookies or 4 dozen smaller

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs plus 1 yolk
2 tsp vanilla
3 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3 cups flour


1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

Preheat oven to 375°

In bowl of stand mixer cream butter and both sugars together for 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
Add in both egg and additional yolk into butter along with vanilla and beat until smooth, scraping the sides as necessary.

Mix in Pumpkin Pie Spice, baking powder and salt until combined.  Reduce speed on mixer to low and mix in flour until dough comes together.

Chill dough for at least an hour.

When ready to bake, line baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 375°

Mix coating ingredients (light brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice) together in a bowl, set aside.
Roll dough into large balls, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and then roll into the sugar/pumpkin pie spice mixture, coating completely.

Bake for 7-8 minutes until cookies are lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from oven and transfer to wire rack to cool.
