Pumpkindoodle Cookies

They may look like snickerdoodles but trust me, they aren’t…. these Pumpkindoodle Cookies are so much more! These cookies are spongy and full of lovely pumpkin flavor. These are so yummy, they’re not just for the fall season, but good anytime!!!!


Pumpkindoodle Cookies
  • ½ Cup softened butter
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla
  • ¾ Cup Sugar
  • ¾ Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ Teaspoon salt
  • ½ Cup of pumpkin puree
  • ½ Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 2 Cups freshly milled flour
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ Teaspoon ginger
  1. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes

Mix all the ingredients together (I start with the dry ingredients and then add in the wet ones.) The dough will be sticky so grab a spoon in order to form your cookies. In a small bowl, pour some sugar then drop in “balls” of dough off your spoon. Once the sugar coats the glob of dough it becomes easy to handle and shape. Place the sugar covered balls on a greased pan and squish (flatten) them a little with the palm of your hand. Back at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

So how good are these cookies? Well if the rate of consumption by my country kids is any indicator, they are awesome. And get this, my neighbor who doesn’t like pumpkin… yeah I gave her one but didn’t tell her what it was…. she liked it!!!! Guess who might just like pumpkin after all!?!?!

So why are you still sitting in front of your computer!?!?!? Get in the kitchen and start baking… I promise, your taste buds will thank you!!


About Mindie @ The (mis)Adventures of a "Born Again" Farm Girl

On a 1/4 acre in a VERY small town lives a slightly deranged woman who never thought she would be a Farm Girl again, then her son asked for a chicken! So began The (mis)Adventures of a “Born Again“ Farm Girl.

Hi, my name is Mindie and I quickly realized my rebirth went much deeper then a few hens ….. It awoke a desire in me to do more, ourselves, for our family…. To learn the “old ways” of doing things. We raise chickens, ducks and rabbits, garden and can, tap our maple tree for syrup, cure our own hams, make lard and our own bacon! This spring we will be adding bee hives as well! It is never a dull moment here in Michigan with my hubby and two country kids.

And of course I love to cook and bake. There is just something about home cooking that not only brings comfort to the heart but healthier food to the plate. The ability to mill our own grains had been on our list of homesteading goals and I am so excited to be a part of The Grain Mill Wagon Challenge.
