Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

Yum
"Don't you just love old-fashioned recipes?  I do!  They are always delicious, made with simple ingredients and have a way of bringing back special memories when you eat them.  These cookies are a perfect example of that.  They are chewy, sweet and just like the old fashioned ones, only YUMMIER with just a hint of nutmeg.  Bake some today and then pour yourself a big glass of milk and sit back and enjoy your special memories!"
 
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
 
1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups flour
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.  Add flour, egg, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar.  Mix until well combined.  (The mixture will appear crumbly, but will come together when you form it with your hands.)  Form into balls by rolling about 1 Tablespoon of dough in between the palms of your hands.  Roll balls in Pumpkin Pie Spice Sugar (recipe follows). 
 
Pumpkin Pie Spice Sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice    
 
In a small bowl, combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice.  Roll balls of cookie dough in sugar mixture until completely covered.  Place cookies 2 inches apart on non-stick cookie sheets.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
