Pumpkin Cheesecake Snickerdoodles

I took these pictures with my phone, sigh. Oh well, the cookies though? The cookies are AMAZING. DH's favorite cookie I think is the Snickerdoodle. I'm a pumpkin fanatic so you know how that goes. Give a little, take a little, then add cheesecake. Why not? Match made in heaven. Tender cookie, smooth cheesecake filling...
Go, make these now. Bookmark and/or pin them for all those cookie exchanges coming up this season.
