It is that time of year again. I absolutely love Fall.  Cool breeze in the air, leaves falling off the tree, well if you are outside of Florida, and pumpkin spice everything! So I hope you are ready for a fantastic pumpkin cookie recipe because I am sharing the BEST pumpkin cookie recipe today. These Pumpkin Cinnamon Cookies are hands down the best pumpkin cookies I have ever made or eaten.

Pumpkin cookies traditionally have a little cinnamon in them, but I wanted the cinnamon to really pop in these so I added an extra healthy dose of ground cinnamon and cinnamon chips to the dough. The finishing touch is rolling the dough in the cinnamon sugar mix to give it that extra flavorful kick!

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips
