10 of my Favorite Pumpkin Cookie Recipes! I have pumpkin cookie recipes for any preference. Soft & tender, puffy & pillowy, or ultra-chewy! With a good variety of icings, frostings, glazes, and mix-ins like spices, chocolate, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, and even nuts & cranberries.
Whatever your favorite type of pumpkin cookies, I have a recipe for you.
I’ve also included a few pumpkin bar and pumpkin blondie-type cookies, and as a bonus, three recipes that don’t technically contain any pumpkin, but where pumpkin spice is heavily featured. Just for fun.
Check out some of my favorite pumpkin cookie recipes!
