Pumpkin Snickerdoodle


    For the Cookie Dough
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 7 tablespoons pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour, unbleached white or gluten free
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground Ras el Hanout


  1. Whisk together the melted butter and sugars in a medium bowl. Add the pumpkin purée and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients for the cookie dough and make a well in the center. Pour in the pumpkin mixture and stir until the flour is incorporated. Don't over-mix!
  3. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. At this point the dough can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. In a shallow dish, combine the sugar and Cinnamon Toast Spice for rolling.
  6. Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Scoop out 1 slightly rounded tablespoon of dough for each cookie, roll the dough into a ball and then roll it into the sugar and Cinnamon Toast Spice mixture. Arrange the cookies on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Flatten them slightly and bake 8-10 minutes until they are puffed and slightly golden.
  7. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and allow to cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Then remove the cookies from the pans and enjoy!

Many thanks to Erin at Well-Plated for the excellent recipe! We’ve barely adapted it here to make the cookies just a little bit smaller, and switched up the spice. The texture of these pillowy poufs is amazing and they are a snap to make.Pumpkin Snickerdoodle

    Made this tonight and it turned out fantastic! Used a #40 cookie scoop so it took a little longer and had to make my own cinnamon toast blend, but everyone raved about them…always looking for more ways to use Ras el Hanout.
