Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

My pumpkin obsession has continued. These cookies are awesome, one of my coworkers called them the crack cookies because she was so addicted to them after 1 bite. They aren't overwhelming with pumpkin flavor but just a hint to make them festive. This recipe is from Bunny's Warm Oven but I found it on Cooking with Christine.

1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Place the butter in a bowl and mix it for 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 cups sugar and pumpkin and mix until blended. Beat in cream of tartar, vanilla, baking soda and salt. Beat in the egg. Add the flour and beat in as much as possible with the mixer then stir in with a wooden spoon. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for an hour. In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Heat oven to 350. Drop teaspoons of the batter into the sugar mixture, roll around and place on an ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Repeat until all the dough is done. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
