When I think of autumn, I envision leaves changing colors, the crisp air, and the enchanting aroma of spices wafting through the house. It’s a time for comfort, for slowing down, and of course, for baking. That’s why I created these Soft Batch Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles. I wanted to craft a cookie that not only tastes like fall but also respects various dietary preferences while not compromising on that buttery, soft goodness that we all love about Snickerdoodles!
These cookies are on rotation at the Akerberg household (in moderation because wow we finish the batch really quickly!) and a favorite around the Thanksgiving dinner table. In the spirit of inclusivity and indulgence, these cookies blend the rich, inviting flavors of pumpkin spice with the classic, homely feel of snickerdoodles. But these aren’t your average snickerdoodles, because we’re taking things up a notch by adding a pumpkin spice twist to create something truly magical.

Ah, the snickerdoodle, a cookie that’s as fun to say as it is to eat! It’s a classic treat that hails from the heart of cozy, home-baked goodness. Traditionally, a snickerdoodle is a soft, buttery cookie, kissed with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar, offering a delightful contrast of a slightly crisp exterior with a tender, chewy middle. It’s the kind of cookie that feels like a warm hug from the inside out. The snickerdoodle stands out with its humble simplicity and comforting flavors, making it a beloved favorite in many households, especially during the festive seasons or when you just need that perfect, sweet, cinnamon-laced pick-me-up!
Pumpkin spice’s irresistible appeal in autumn comes from more than its rich, warming blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and sometimes allspice. It’s a flavor that embodies the season itself, evoking images of rustling golden leaves, snug sweaters, and comforting family gatherings. As cooler air and shorter days emerge, we naturally crave these warm, soothing spices, which not only delight our taste buds but also stir a sense of nostalgia and comfort. I don’t know that there is any real scientific truth to why we are all so obsessed with it around this time of the year but have you had pumpkin spice in the summer? It’s not the same folks; so indulge in it as much as possible because winter will be here before you know it and we will be onto a whole new flavor palette!
So embrace the cooler days of autumn with my Soft Batch Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles. Each bite encapsulates the essence of the season in a grain-free, vegan, and keto-friendly package, inviting everyone to fall in love with the season anew.
So, preheat your oven and let’s bring the heartwarming aromas and joy of baking into our homes, one delightful Snickerdoodle at a time.
