In My Kitchen: Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

Is there anything better than a soft, cinnamony snickerdoodle? It turns out there is – a snickerdoodle baked with pumpkin puree! The pumpkin adds a super-moist element to the cookies with a seasonal flavor that is subtle and not overbearing.

You’ll need:

  • 5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 teaspoons pumpkin spice, divided
  • 2 cups butter, at room temperature
  • 2 2/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt and 4 teaspoons pumpkin spice. Set aside.
  3. In a mixer, cream together butter, 2 cups sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, waiting for the first to fully incorporate before adding the next. Beat on medium-high for 4 minutes.
  4. Add pumpkin and mix on low until incorporated, then beat on medium until the pumpkin is no longer separated from butter-sugar mixture, about 3 minutes. Add dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together remaining sugar and pumpkin spice.
  6. Scoop out a 2-tablespoon size portion of cookie dough and roll into a ball. Roll ball in spiced sugar mixture to coat. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving 2 inches between each cookie dough ball.
  7. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until edges are lightly browned and cookie tops are dry to the touch. Transfer to cool on wire rack.
