Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe


Snickerdoodle meet Pumpkin Spice! These mouthwatering, slightly sweet, chewy Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodle Cookies are perfect for fall.

Hey there Kenarry readers! Trish here with an eggless cookie recipe that is absolutely meant for this time of year. Everything else (including macaroni-n-cheese) is available in Pumpkin Spice flavor right now so why not add a Snickerdoodle Cookie in Pumpkin Spice too?

However, that said, I have a feeling that if you are anything like my boys you’ll be thankful that Pumpkin puree is sold year-round. Unlike those seasonal specialty lattes, that people seem to go crazy over this time of year, this gem of a cookie can be made and enjoyed year-round.

Celebrate Pumpkin Spice Season with a slightly sweet chewy Snickerdoodle Cookie that tastes just like fall. The aromas that will fill your kitchen are better than any candle could ever be! They make the perfect gift, but you’ll want to eat them all yourself.

Make this treat even more indulgent by whipping up a batch of our (super easy!) Nutella cookie dip to serve with these Snickerdoodles.

  • Use a silicone baking mat or a layer of parchment paper on your cookie sheet.
  • Leave the dough in the shape of a ball when you place the pan in the oven; rather than flatten the cookie.
