Gluten free pumpkin cookies

My family is continuing on the journey of a gluten free diet. We tried Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies earlier and now it’s time for Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies Recipe!

We love them and I hope you enjoy them just as much! The pumpkin is so delicious and I know pumpkin fans will appreciate this recipe!

While some people love to enjoy pumpkin recipes in the Fall, I love them all year long! They are really quick and easy to make.

You truly do not miss the gluten in these delicious cookies. Even my gluten loving family didn’t notice! Everyone said the cookies were amazing.

How to make gluten free pumpkin cookies

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your cookie sheet by spraying with cooking spray.

Second, mix together all of the dry ingredients: gluten free flour through salt.

Next, cream the sugar and butter together. Once this is mixed together really good, slowly stir in the pumpkin.

After the pumpkin has been added, add the egg and vanilla. Mix this together really good.

Now, it is time to slowly add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Combine until a thick batter forms.

You want the batter to be thick. If it is too thin, just place in the fridge to harden before baking.

Finally, put the confectioner’s sugar in a bowl. Start scooping cookies about a tablespoon in size and then drop in the sugar. Roll it around to coat it really good.

Put each of the cookies on the prepared cookie sheet. Once you have all of the cookies on the baking sheet, use a glass cup and gently press down on the cookie to make them a little flatter.

They do not take long to bake. Normally only about 6 to 8 minutes. Be careful to not over bake.

Let the cookies cool on wire rack.

How to store pumpkin cookies:

Store the cookies inside an airtight container. I also like to put wax paper in between each layer of cookies so they don’t stick to each other.

  • Learn how to make pumpkin pie spice at home when you don’t have any on hand. It only takes a few minutes to make and it’s so easy. We bake a lot of pumpkin recipes and it is so much cheaper to make this.
  • Save time and use these stainless steel scoops to make the cookies. You will use these all the time. They make it so much easier to make a bunch of cookies at once. Plus, they are all uniform which makes it easy to cook them all evenly.
  • Love chocolate? Add a handful of chocolate chips to the batter. Yum! We love gluten free pumpkin chocolate cookies.

    I substituted coconut oil for butter to make them dairy free. Delicious. I also used maple syrup for half of the sugar. I had to bake them for about 12 mins.

    These gf/paleo cookies are delicious. Perfect start to fall and a wonderful complement to a cup of hot cocoa! Definitely required 10 minutes at 350 degrees, followed recipe to a T and turned out beautifully.
