Homemade Pumpkin Cookies

Homemade Soft Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Cookies.

You either love them or you don’t.

Personally, I love them. 

There are so many variations out there and I’m sure you already have your favorite recipe. But I have to say- this  easy homemade Pumpkin Cookie recipe will probably top them all.

These cookies turn out soft but also a little chewy. They have just the right amount of pumpkin and spice flavor. And they are really easy, too. They freeze well and they make a lot from just one batch.

You can make them into muffins by pouring the batter into muffin tins and you can switch up what kind of chocolate chips you use (or leave them out completely!), too. 

They are seriously so hard to mess up and turn out perfect every time.

Get ready to be asked where you got this recipe from because when you share them with friends and family they will ask you for it.


2 12 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

12 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

12 teaspoon salt
