This super easy snickerdoodle cookie recipe is the best and most fun to make. Add pumpkin spice and you have the perfect fall cookie. Soft, chewy, and buttery cinnamon sugar cookie all the classic flavors. The perfect cookie to make with your kids to start them learning to bake.


Units Scale
  • 4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup of butter (2 sticks) at room temperature
  • 1 cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of white sugar
  • 2 room temperature eggs
  • 1/4 cup of milk (I like to use 1/2 and 1/2)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • For rolling the cookie before baking
  • 3 tablespoons of white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon


  1. First, measure and whisk together in a medium bowl the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and cream of tartar and set aside.
  2. Next, mix the topping of cinnamon and sugar and set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer cream together the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time and cream.
  5. Next, add the vanilla to the sugar and butter mixture.
  6. With the mixer on low add the flour mixture and the milk alternating one at a time.
  7. When the dough comes together and is too thick for the mixer, stop the mixer and mix by hand.
  8. Refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes just until you can form into balls.
  9. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  10. Roll about a 1-inch ball and roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat the outside of the cookie
  11. Place cookies on a silicone baking mat or parchment paper about 2 inches apart.
  12. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. You want the cookies to be cooked but still soft in the middle. It is ok to undercook a minute or so.
  13. After you take the cookie sheet out of the oven set the cookies still on the cookie sheet to rest for about 2 minutes.
  14. Place the cookies on a cooling rack.
