Chewy Pumpkin Cookies

Chewy Pumpkin Cookies by Double Stop Bake Shop

It only takes a few minutes to whip up a batch of my Chewy Pumpkin Cookies. Some might call these pumpkin spice snickerdoodles, but my recipe is a little different. No eggs required, a touch of honey, and oh so good! Four batches have disappeared the past week. Family and friends really love these cookies! Try a batch and let me know what you think. Happy Baking!

Servings 12


Pumpkin Spiced Sugar (for rolling)

  • 2 heaping Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or make your own, see notes)

Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 c. + 2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 stick unsalted browned butter
  • 1/3 to 1/2 c. pumpkin puree (see video and notes for details on brands and texture)
  • 2 c. all purpose flour (8.5 ounces)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt, heaping (if using salted butter, make it a level 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or make your own, see notes)


Pumpkin Spiced Sugar

  • Mix together the 2 heaping Tbsp. sugar and 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and set aside.

Browned Butter

  • Melt and brown butter over medium high heat until nice light golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. The butter will continue to bron a little more as it cools.

Cookie Dough

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugarm sugar, vanilla, honey, browned butter (its ok if its still a little warm) and pumpkin puree. (*Every brand of canned pumpkin has a different consistency. I used organic, its a little thinner, so 1/3 cup was plenty. Libby's pumpkin is a little thicker and required using closer to 1/2 cup. See video for the correct texture of dough.)
  • Add dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide dough into 12 balls, roll in spiced sugar mixture, and barely flatten tops of dough balls. All 12 fit on my baking sheet. You might try baking 6 at a time depending on the the size of your baking sheet until you see how the dough works for you.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 16 minutes. Baking times will vary depending on your oven. Probably between 16 to 18 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
