Time saving tip for pumpkin crinkle cookies:

If you are still scooping cookies with two spoons, you really need to get yourself some stainless steel scoops! I have had mine for several years and I use them for all types of baking. We like to use the smallest of the 3 scoops for these Pumpkin Cookies and they were just the right size for adults and kids.

Plus, I also think they look more uniform when you use a cookie scoop.

I bought the three pack, so I can use the smaller two for cookies and then the bigger one to fill up cupcakes:) They will get lots of use and you will be glad you bought them.

This Pumpkin Cookie Recipe taste great right out of the oven. However, if you can wait a little bit, they taste even better the next day!

I know that sounds crazy, but the longer these cookies sit, the more rich the flavor becomes. Don’t believe me? Try it!

Make this Pumpkin Cookie recipe and try some right away. Then try some the next day, and then the day after that.

It’s also amazing with cream cheese icing. So delicious with the pumpkin pie spice! We also love a pumpkin chocolate chip combination for something different.

Do you like these fresh out of the oven or a day or two later? That might seem like an easy enough question. The only challenge will be to see if you and your family can actually make these last more than a day or two. 😉

money saving tip

 
This recipe is very frugal, since you are making it from scratch. However, to save even more money, stock up on pumpkin during the fall months. Canned pumpkin is at its lowest price in October and November. Stock up so you can enjoy our pumpkin recipes all year long at the lowest price.

  1. These cookies were amazing! such a nice easy change from pumpkin loaf! I would definitely make these again, my whole family enjoyed them.

  2. I’m getting ready to make these, how do you keep them from sticking to your hand? Do you stick them in the fridge for 30 minutes or so?

  3. I made these and they came out great! Do you store them in the frig or just a sealed container in cabinet? Thanks!

  4. 5 stars
    I made these for a pre-Thanksgiving get together and they were a hit with the whole croud. I’m definitely going to be making many more for Thanksgiving. The recipe is simple but absolutely delicious!

  5. Oh man those look good! Ive been reading about pumpkin recipes out of my ears and I’m making these asap. Thank you and now its time to cruise your site!

  6. I can’t wait to make them, they look so yummy! Thank you for all the yummy recipes you give us!

    These are excellent! I will make these every year. I would add a helpful tip: use a spoon or ice cream scoop, NOT your hands, to roll dough in the powdered sugar. I used tongs to get the dough out of the sugar and on the baking sheet.

  8. I made these cookies on September 25, 2019. Due to having to roll the cookies in icing sugar they took longer than other cookie recipes but well worth the extra time. I love the taste of all the spices and will definitely make these cookies again.

    I picked this recipe for a thanksgiving desert. While mixing everything together I was getting more and more excited to see how these turned out! The recipe specifically states DO NOT OVER COOK. At the 6 and 8 minute park I could not see how letting them cool on a wire rack would settle the batter. I baked these cookies a total of 3 times throwing all 30 away each time not to mention all the money I spent. I was so ready to give up. I finally called my mom to come over for reinforcements… in order to get these cookies to bake fully without over doing the tops or bottoms I had to flatten them. I am so glad I kept trying and didn’t give up because these cookies are #2 on my list of homemade items I love!

  10. 5 stars
    These cookies are so easy to make and absolutely delcious! I messed up though and stored them in tupperware containers overnight and they were super wet the next day. Wondering how to store them so this doesnt happen. Ill need to know because im baking tons of these for holidays this year!

  11. I place a piece of bread in the container with the cookies and the bread soaks up all the moisture. I’m glad you enjoyed them!

  12. These were extremely easy to put together but baking them was a guessing game. I used tablespoon sized balls and placed two sheets of cookies in the oven. After 8 minutes at 350 degrees hey were still completely dough! I put in again for 3 minutes, then another 3 minutes then another 4 and crossed my fingers. Getting them off the pan was tricky because they were so soft each time, so when I took them out for the last time I placed them on top of my oven and let them sit. I made the kids lunch and then came back to get them on the cooling rack. It was much easier to work with my then. Not as set as my husband would’ve liked, but the kids thought they were incredible! In the future I will make these smaller and flatten the balls before baking.

  13. 5 stars
    Fantastic recipe! These cookies are incredibly light and airy with an almost “cake-like” texture. Just made a batch tonight and have the dough chilling overnight (very sticky) to make more tomorrow. I did use my cookie scoop and flattened them as some of the commenters and author suggested. Bake time was 8 minutes for me.
