With the epic Yarn Crawl keeping me busy, this week I decided to trick out a cookie mix. In this case, Snickerdoodle, which seems to basically be a sugar cookie mix with an additional packet of cinnamon sugar. All this required was the addition of a stick of butter and an egg. I still had some pumpkin puree to use, and that seemed to be a complimentary flavor, though I'm not sure you get too much of it. To save even more time, I made them into squares rather than cookies.
These can of course also be made with 'real' dough brought together from scratch. But whether it's a mix or completely homemade, my coworkers loved them!
- 1 pouch Snickerdoodle cookie mix
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 bag Hershey's Cinnamon Chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Follow the directions on the pouch for making the dough, substituting the egg with the pumpkin. Mix in about a third of the cinnamon sugar packet into the dough, and stir in the chips.
- Spread the dough into a 9x13" pan lined with parchment paper. (Another pan size will be fine.)
- Sprinkle the top with the remaining cinnamon sugar. I still had about a third left, but you can add more.
- Bake until the edges are set and the middle doesn't jiggle. That's the best gauge I can give, unless you just know when they are done. This was 15-20 minutes for me.
