How To Make Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Bake a flavorful fall treat with these pumpkin cookies. They brim with the flavor of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice and studded with cinnamon chips.

Preparation: 45 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 55 minutes



  • ½cupunsalted butter
  • ¼cuplight or dark brown sugar,packed
  • 1cupgranulated sugar,divided
  • 1tsppure vanilla extract
  • 6tbsppumpkin puree
  • cupsall purpose flour,spoon & leveled
  • ¼tspsalt
  • ¼tspbaking powder
  • ¼tspbaking soda
  • 2tspground cinnamon,divided
  • 1tsppumpkin pie spice
  • cupcinnamon chips


  1. Melt the butter in the microwave. In a medium bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and ½ cup granulated sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain.

  2. Whisk in the vanilla and pumpkin until smooth. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, toss together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, 1½ teaspoons cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. The dough will be very soft.

  5. Fold in the cinnamon chips. They may not stick to the dough because of the melted butter, disperse them evenly through the dough.

  6. Cover the dough and chill for 30 minutes or up to 3 days. Chilling is mandatory.

  7. Take the dough out of the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

  8. Roll the dough into balls, about 1.5 Tablespoons of dough each.

  9. Mix together the remaining ½ cup of granulated sugar and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon. Roll each of the dough balls generously in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and arrange on 2 baking sheets.

  10. Slightly flatten the dough balls because the cookies will only slightly spread in the oven.

  11. Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked. Keeping them in the oven for longer may dry them out.

  12. Remove from the oven and press a few more cinnamon chips onto the tops, if desired. If the cookies didn’t spread much at all, flatten them when taken out of the oven.

  13. Allow the cookies to cool for at least 10 minutes on the cookie sheets before transferring to a wire rack. The longer the cookies cool, the chewier they will be.

  14. Sit out for at least 1 hour before enjoying. Chewiness and pumpkin flavor are more prominent on day 2.
