These pumpkin snickerdoodles are soft and fluffy like cake on the inside, but with a crisp cookie exterior covered in pumpkin pie spice sugar. The cookies taste like fall, with lots of pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavor. These flavors also intensify the longer they sit, and become even more flavorful and prominent the day after baking. The best part? Unlike other pumpkin cookies or snickerdoodle cookies, you don’t need to chill the dough before baking! Simply make the cookie dough (it takes around 10 minutes!) and bake the cookies.

Why You Should Make Pumpkin Snickerdoodles
Now let’s talk about all the reasons why you should make these pumpkin snickerdoodles:
This pumpkin snickerdoodle recipe combines two fall favorites: soft pumpkin cookies and snickerdoodles.
Fall is here and you want to bake something seasonal. But can’t decide between soft pumpkin cookies and classic snickerdoodles? Well, why not have both?! These pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies are a cross between soft pumpkin cookies and cinnamon snickerdoodles!
This pumpkin snickerdoodle recipe was custom developed for you!
Every month, I poll my Patreon subscribers about their baking and dessert cravings. I then go on to develop recipes based on their feedback. And last month, over 100 of them voted on this pumpkin snickerdoodle recipe!
Furthermore, I shared every step of the recipe development process on my Instagram Stories. Along the way, several thousand of you helped determine the quality of the cookies. I ran polls on whether the cookies should be soft and cakey like snickerdoodles, or chewy like sugar cookies. Many of you craved soft and cakey cookies… so here we are!
This pumpkin snickerdoodle recipe comes together quickly.
Unlike other soft pumpkin cookies or traditional snickerdoodle recipes, you don’t need to chill the cookie dough before baking. As a result, you can make the cookie dough for these pumpkin snickerdoodles in 15 minutes!

Over the past several years of running Hummingbird High, I kept a crucial aspect of my life hidden from my readers: I had a full-time, extremely demanding job in the tech world. In my debut cookbook, Weeknight Baking, I finally reveal the secrets to baking delicious desserts on a tight schedule.
