If you’re a big fan of the classic snickerdoodle cookie, you’re absolutely gonna love this pumpkin version.

These cookies are thick, soft and chewy, LOADED with pumpkin puree, and perfectly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.

Just like the original, these pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies have been generously rolled in cinnamon sugar just before being baked.

These snickerdoodles are one of my favourite cookies to make in autumn/fall time, and I’m sure you’ll love making them just as much!

Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Plain/all-purpose flour
  • Cream of tartar
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Ground ginger
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Ground cloves
  • Unsalted butter: Softened to room temperature.
  • Caster/granulated sugar

  • Granulated sugar
  • Ground cinnamon

How to make Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

To make these cookies, simply grab a medium mixing bowl and whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, and spices. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until fluffy and completely combined.

Add the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract, and mix until smooth and combined.

Add the dry ingredients and fold in until completely combined. If necessary, use your hands to fold in the last of the flour and form a thick dough.

For the cinnamon sugar, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, generously coat each ball in the cinnamon sugar, and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.

Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
