You have to admit, pumpkin cookies are like little bites of fall bliss. They have all the warm flavors that make autumn such a cozy season and most of them are super easy to make. Plus, who doesn’t love the smell of cookies baking in the oven?

What flavors pair well with pumpkin in baking recipes?

To enhance the fall experience, consider adding warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves to your recipes. After all, they are all part of the delicious pumpkin pie spice everyone loves—I’m talking to you PSL lovers!

For an extra layer of indulgence, throw in some chocolate chips, pecans, or even a swirl of cream cheese. Your taste buds will thank you!

Pumpkin puree or pumpkin pie filling?

Before I give you my awesome list of cookie recipes, a quick tip: all of these pumpkin creations use canned pumpkin puree, not the pie filling. We want that 100% pure pumpkin goodness to shine through in every bite!

Using pure pumpkin puree allows you to control the sweetness and flavor of your recipe. It also gives your cookies a nutirient boost with vitamins and fiber. Hey, I’ll take a healthy boost wherever I can (especially in cookies)!

Okay, let’s get to the baking fun! Scroll down for some amazing pumpkin cookie recipes that will make your fall extra delicious this year. Oh, and at the bottom of the list you will find some great recipes for specialty diets like gluten-free, vegan, keto, and more!
