I love all of my pumpkin cookie recipes, but these Pumpkin Cinnamon Cookies are my new favorite. Sorry other pumpkin cookies, I hate to pick a favorite, but these Pumpkin Cinnamon Cookies are number one in my book now! I am madly in love with them!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Cookies are the perfect fall cookie. Everyone loves these easy pumpkin cookies!

I really wasn’t planning on blogging about these cookies until later in the fall, but I shared them with two friends and they both text me asking for the recipe. They both loved them! One of my friends even said that these cookies are not only the best pumpkin cookies, but the best cookies ever..out of all the cookies! She said these cookies will be in heaven’s cookie jar:) I am fine with that!

So we are kicking off pumpkin season a little early. I didn’t want my friends to wait…and that includes all of you:)

Pumpkin Cinnamon Cookies are soft pumpkin cookies with cinnamon chips

Pumpkin cookies traditionally have cinnamon in them, but I upped the cinnamon by adding an extra healthy dose of ground cinnamon to the dough. I also added cinnamon chips!

If you haven’t baked with cinnamon chips, you are missing out! I can usually find them at the grocery store, but if I can’t I order them from Amazon. I love them and they are a MUST for fall baking. I suggest you stock up because you are going to be baking a billion batches of these Pumpkin Cinnamon Cookies after you taste them. I am already going on my third batch.

Pumpkin Cookies with cinnamon chips and rolled in cinnamon and sugar. The best fall cookie recipe.

To finish off the cookies and to keep with the cinnamon theme, I roll the cookies in a cinnamon sugar mixture before baking. The mixture adds a nice sweet touch and makes the cookies extra purty!

For the Cookies:

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with Silpat baking mats or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.
  • Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla and mix until combined, about 3 minutes. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in the cinnamon chips.
  • In a small bowl, mix together sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into rounded tablespoons and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place balls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Lightly press down on the cookies with a spatula or the palm of your hand.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

  1. These sound wonderful, and I plan on making them asap. I never use canned pumpkin, always fresh puree – should I change the amount?

    1. Kim,

      I made this recipe today. I dropped the Spoonful of dough directly in the cinnamon mixture and gently rolled it around in there. The mixture appeared to be sticky enough that I wasn’t wanting to try rolling it in my hands. They came out fantastic.
      I hope that helps!

    These are my favorite cookies of all time. I made them multiple times every fall. Soft and chewy and delicious.

  3. I make these cookies often! One thing that I do is make a cream cheese frosting and fill between 2 cookies, like a whoopie pie

    These are my favorite fall cookie! The pumpkin and spices are just so delightful in the form of a fluffy muffin top-esque cookie!

    I knew I would love these cookies! It took me a long time to find the cinnamon chips. Without ordering them. I have made them a few times. Today made a double batch, so I can pop some in the freezer:) Thank you!

    These are delicious! Love all the spices and they stay soft! I might try topping them off with cream cheese icing.

    OMG! This has to be my new favorite recipe! These cookies have just the right “pumpkin spice” to them. They bake up fluffy and round – just perfect! I honestly forgot the sugar-cinnamon topping, but they didn’t even need it!

  8. I am going to make these for my son and his friend for after school treat. I have a Pumpkin Spice already premade with all the spices in your recipe would you happen to have an idea how much I can use for this recipe? It would save from measuring all the spices when its already all in one bottle as Pumpkin Spice. I hope that makes sense.
