Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Two cookies in one week?! I KNOW! *sorry not sorry* It is October after all and I haven’t posted a pumpkin recipe yet. That needed to be rectified ASAP. Here we are with a pumpkin cookie rolled in the perfect fall spices. Cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

I feel a tad hypocritical posting this pumpkin spice cookie just after I said pumpkin spiced everything is a bit overplayed. These cookies are awesome though. I will take my pumpkin spiced whatever in baked good form instead of lotions, lipgloss, and candy corn. *shudder*

This week I baked dozens and dozens and dozens of cookies. Like a crazy amount of butter and flour were used in my kitchen this week. I had a bake sale at school AND parent teacher conference treats I needed to make. Of course I baked up a couple batches of the Salted Caramel Oatmeal Cookies and my favorite M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies but I wanted to add a new cookie to the mix and the pumpkin snickerdoodles seemed like a great idea.

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Since I was pretty busy I didn’t have enough time to test and retest and retest a cookie recipe from scratch. While I love creating my own recipes I just needed some help from an established recipe. I checked one of my favorite kitchen resources The Kitchn and found a good sounding recipe. My only change was adding 1/4 teaspoon of cloves to the sugar mixture.

The outside of these cookies have a nice crunch from the spiced sugar mixture while the inside of the cookie is soft and fluffy. These cookies prove that you don’t need chocolate or caramel to have a tasty cookie. 🙂

Tell me are you a pumpkin spiced whatever fan?

  1. Stop it …wah!! your cookie posts look so amazing and I’m trying out the gluten free lifestyle for awhile…not fair. 🙁 wah!! (yep, that’s me crying over here.) But seriously though, those look amazing!

  2. This ended up to be a very sticky wet dough which was nearly impossible to roll. Is that was you intended? It seems like it needed more flour…..

    1. Oh no sorry Melissa! My dough was slightly sticky but not impossible to roll. Maybe add a few tablespoons of flour until you get the consistency you desire.
