Pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies are the perfect fall cookie. Loaded with pumpkin spice, each cookie is chewy and absolutely delicious!
Oh man, the pumpkin spice craze is alive and well. It seems to start the second Labor Day is over and people go nuts! For good reason though—pumpkin spice does amazing things for baked goods.
I kicked off the pumpkin spice season with pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies.
These cookies are loaded with pumpkin spice flavor—cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all spice and brown sugar. The flavors make each cookie irresistible.
I’m all for the pumpkin spice craze. The flavors lure you into the fall season and leave you feeling all warm and cozy inside.
These pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies do the same thing. With one bite, you will be in such a fall mood that you’ll put on your riding boots and flannel and head out to the pumpkin patch.
Seriously though, doesn’t any pumpkin spice goodie make you want to do all the fall festivities?
Like any standard snickerdoodle, these cookies are rolled in cinnamon sugar before baking. It gives each cookie a crystallized sugar layer over the orange pumpkin hue.
I also found that chilling the dough and rolling the cookies into balls makes them extra chewy. As the cookies bake, they get little cracks on the top revealing the pumpkin flavor hidden inside.
With all the flavor and chewiness, I could polish off a stack of pumpkin snickerdoodles in minutes!
This is a really easy recipe to make so if you’re thinking of trying it out with kids I say go for it! The kids will love rolling the dough in the cinnamon sugar and plopping them on the baking sheet.
The cookies are also an excellent dessert to make for friends who have birthdays in September and October. I happen to have three family members with birthdays in the fall!
This batch of pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies went so quickly I’m thinking of baking the cookies again for Halloween and Thanksgiving!
When do you think is the best time to start baking pumpkin desserts?
