Pumpkin Snickerdoodles are the perfect fall twist on the classic spiced holiday cookie.

These soft and chewy treats combine the warmth of pumpkin pie spice with a delicate, crackly cinnamon-sugar exterior.


Let’s dive into the recipe!


1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

½ teaspoon cream of tartar

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon kosher salt

½ cup unsalted butter (softened)

1 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

⅓ cup pumpkin puree

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cinnamon-sugar for coating


Mixing bowls

Baking sheet lined with parchment paper


Cream Butter and Sugar:

Mix together the softened butter and granulated sugar until smooth.

Add the brown sugar and cream together until light and fluffy.

Incorporate Wet Ingredients:

Stir in the egg, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract.

Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.

Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until combined.

Chill the Dough:

Cover the dough and let it chill in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes.

Preheat the Oven:

Shape and Coat:

Roll each ball in cinnamon-sugar to coat.


Place the coated dough balls on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set and slightly golden.

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.
