As you know, I love fall, and I love everything pumpkin flavored! Snickerdoodle cookies are one of my favorite fall time treats. They make me feel all warm and cozy. Here is a delicious recipe for pumpkin skickerdoodles that is to die for!


  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugardsc_0128
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

For the coating:

  • 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Dash of allspice

In an electric mixer bowl, beat together the butter and sugars on medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in the pumpkin puree and then beat in the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flower, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir them all together until they are mixed well. Cover the bowl and chill the dough for about an hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Mix the coating ingredients in a small bowl. Make small balls out of the dough and roll them into the sugar mixture. Set them on a cookie sheet about two inches apart. Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes or until they are thoroughly baked. Let them cool for about 5 minutes. Then enjoy!!
