How To Make Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

These pumpkin cookies are filled with the comforting flavors of fall, thanks to the mix of spices in them- cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 3cupsall purpose flour,spooned into measuring cup, leveled-off with back edge of knife
  • 1tspbaking soda
  • 1tspbaking powder
  • ½tspsalt
  • 2tspground cinnamon
  • 1tspground ginger
  • ¾tspground nutmeg
  • ¾tspground cloves
  • 1cupunsalted butter,(2 sticks), softened
  • 1cupgranulated sugar
  • 1cuplight brown sugar,packed
  • 2large eggs
  • 1tspvanilla extract
  • cupspumpkin purée,(15 oz), canned
  • 2tbspturbinado sugar,or demerara sugar


  1. Arrange the oven racks in upper and middle thirds and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside.

  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar for a few minutes, until light and fluffy. Scrape down the bowl, then beat in the eggs one at a time.

  4. Beat in the vanilla and pumpkin puree. The mixture will look somewhat curdled at this point. Scrape down the bowl, then mix in the flour mixture on low speed.

  5. Scoop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle the cookies evenly with turbinado sugar.

  6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, rotating pans midway through, until puffed and slightly browned around the edges.

  7. Remove from the oven and let rest for a few minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer with a spatula to a wire rack.

  8. Serve and enjoy!
