For the cookies:

For the cinnamon sugar topping:


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat the butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar until blended. Beat in the pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula until combined.
  • Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. Slightly flatten each one as the cookies will not spread very much in the oven.
  • To make the cinnamon sugar topping, combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the cookies.
  • Bake for 12 minutes until puffed and lightly browned around the edges. Allow cookies to slightly cool before serving.
