For these snickerdoodle pumpkin cookies I think it’s important to remove the extra water from the pumpkin or else it will be too sticky when you try to roll out the dough. All you need to do is place the pumpkin between the paper towels and push down lightly until the excess moisture is removed.

These pumpkin snickerdoodles were seriously divine! I cannot wait to make them again and again!

  1. Yum!! I always trust your recipes…and I believe you that these are rockin! I happen to have (a case) pumpkin…so I’m ready to go! Pinning. (=

  2. Made them this afternoon. Yummy recipe. Thanks!

  3. I have the dough chilling, but I can’t find what temperature to bake these at. I’m guessing 350. Is that what you did?

  4. would love to make you`r pumpkin recipes, so could you tell me what is in pumpkin spice and the weight of pumpkin in a can please. thankyou Hells

  5. I’ve got this chilling right now too… But don’t see what temperature to cook them at…

  6. I love snickerdoodles and have an old recipe for ones with white choc chips but never thought to add pumpkin. How good these must be! Pinned!

  7. Oh boy do these look yummy!!

  8. I have made these 3 times so far and will be making them for a cookie exchange this weekend. I am known as the cookie baker amongst my friends and coworkers and these cookies were labelled as THE BEST EVER by everyone. They are absolutely fantastic! I’ve had much success doubling the recipe and am going to quadruple it tonight. Thanks so much for sharing such a fantastic cookie recipe!

    • I am so happy you have had so much success with these cookies! They are one of my all time favorite recipes with pumpkin! Thanks for leaving such a sweet comment Steph! I hope your quadruple batch goes well! :)

  9. I love pumpkin and cannot wait to try the pumpkin snickerdoodles . I have some left over pumpkin chips I may throw in a patch(:


  10. I have been looking for the perfect recipe for pumpkin cookies that were not fluffy and starchy. These look like just the ticket! I am excited to make them!

  11. Sounds delicious! Can’t wait to try this recipe :)

  12. Has anyone tried freezing these? Either the prepared dough or baked cookie? I would love to have some on hand to quickly pull out.

  13. I made these. The flavor is fantastic. I found the texture too quick bread like. I’m gonna make em again to see if I messed up last time. 

    • If it was bread-y, it’s possible you over mixed (which causes the glutens to develop). You’ll want to mix to incorporate, then mix a couple of times by hand (scraping the sides and making sure it’s completely incorporated, but without overmixing). Let us know how it goes! :)

  14. Hello Jamielyn,
    I made these last weekend for “football” Sunday, and I didn’t even get to try one of them. They were gone before half-time. I’m obviously making more today! Hahaha!! Question though, I live at altitude in Denver(about 6000 ft), should I make a high altitude adjustment for this recipe? When I made them last weekend, they were really dense and didn’t spread out very much. Any ideas?

    • Hi Rene! I don’t have much experience baking in high altitudes but I have heard to decrease the baking powder and increase the sugar a little bit. Also increasing the temperature by 25 degrees. If you look it up google they will give you more specifics! :) Glad they were a hit at the football party!
