Delicious Pumpkin Cookie Recipes – Perfect For Sharing

Nothing tastes more like Fall than the wonderful flavor of pumpkin. With these delicious pumpkin cookie recipes, your taste buds will be patiently waiting for the official start of “pumpkin season” no matter what time of year it is.


Pumpkin is naturally rich in fiber but you can add more by using whole wheat flour as well as adding a variety of nuts or nut flours.

This is another reason I like pumpkin cookies so much: I don’t feel guilty when I eat two, three sometimes four of them at once!

On this page, you’ll find links to spicy, chewy and soft pumpkin cookies.

Chocolate, fruit, nuts, and other yummy flavors will all feature, so choose what you love most.

More additions for pumpkin cookies

Why not include fruits such as dehydrated cranberries and raisins into pumpkin cookies.

It’s hard to imagine them being any more delicious than they already are, but when I put a bag of sweet, juicy raisins into one of my recipes, I couldn’t believe how good they tasted with a cup of coffee.

I’ve added pecans, walnuts and almonds before now too and have ended up eating far too many at one sitting.
