How to Make Pumpkin Crinkle Cookies
Set your oven to 350 degrees and use parchment paper to line 2 baking sheets.
Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice into a medium bowl and whisk until combined.
Add the brown sugar, ½ C sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree, and vanilla into a large mixing bowl and beat until well combined.
Add in the butter and beat until combined.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients and combine until smooth.
Add the sugar and powdered sugar to a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Scoop the dough using a small ice cream scooper and drop it into the sugar mixture.
Add the sugar on top of the dough ball to completely coat, then remove from the bowl and roll until a ball shape forms.
Put onto the prepared sheets.
Repeat the process until you use all the dough.
For 12-14 minutes, bake in the oven until the cookies become puffy.
Take out of the oven and let rest to cool thoroughly.
Can I Make Crinkle Cookies Ahead of Time?
This Crinkle Cookie recipe can be made in under 15 minutes. Although, if you are in a rush or need to prepare ahead of time you can. The results for cookies are always best when made fresh, but just be sure to correctly store the dough before use.
What Should I Coat These cookies With?
These Crinkle Cookies are so delicious! They are so flavorful and do not need to be coated with anything. I like to serve them with a big glass of milk. But, if you want to add anything, you can make a simple vanilla or pumpkin icing.
