Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter until fluffy.
  2. Add granulated sugar and pumpkin, and beat well.
  3. Add baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract and egg and beat until well mixed.
  4. Beat in all purpose flour, little bit at a time.
  5. Preheat oven to 350*.
  6. Cover dough with plastic and chill very well.
  7. Before removing the dough from the fridge, in a small bowl, mix together granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger.
  8. Working quickly, use a medium cookie scoop to form 2-teaspoon sized balls. Roll between your palms until uniform and then roll in the sugar mixture.
  9. Place 2 inches apart on a greased or parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.
  10. Once you have rolled all the cookies in the sugar once, start back at the beginning and roll them all a second time – this really increases the nice sugary crispiness on the baked cookies. Trust me here – it is worth doing.
  11. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, until they are very well browned. Remove immediately to a wire rack and cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

I was very disappointed with this recipe. I went and bought all the ingredients with the excitement of eating my favorite cookie with my favorite pumpkin flavor. No flavor of pumpkin nor the snicker doodle and I'm positive I followed the recipe. So, I will back to my regular snicker doodle recipe and feel very generous with my one star rating...

These baked up beautifully and had awesome texture. I loved eating the dough! I too wish that the pumpkin flavor was a little stronger but all in all a great cookie! Thanks

I made this for the My-3-Chefs Event, Theme Pumpkin Cookies. Xexe was an Undiscovered Chef. This was the first of the three pumpkin cookie recipes I made. I love snickerdoodles. The cookies had a great texture, the sugar was crispy on the outside, and they tasted great! Unfortunately, there was little pumpkin flavor. As a snickerdoodle cookie, though, these rocked! The recipe actually yielded 4 dozen cookies. Thanks for posting, Xexe
