Our kids are in love with these cinnamon chip pumpkin spice cookies fresh from the oven and your kids will too once they try them!
This is just plain ridiculous. I can’t stop making new variations of my pumpkin spice cookie. I blame Boys Ahoy. She started it by making those viral rolo pumpkin spice stuffed cookies. My goodness they are delicious. I could eat a barrel of them! Now I’ve got cinnamon chip pumpkin spice cookies for you but if you scroll to the bottom of this post I’ve linked up to all of the other pumpkin spice variations too, some just using the pumpkin spice chips and others with the pudding cookies.
Now I know many of you are like us and you’ve had a hard time finding the pumpkin spice pudding. If you don’t want to drive all over town you can do what we do, we’ve been buying it on Amazon. Yes, pudding in a box, literally. We buy a whole bunch to stockpile for the year and use it in all sorts of desserts like our Pumpkin Spice Sticky Buns and a no bake pie you’ll see in the future.
Why Do Cookies Come Out Flat?
Use half butter and half shortening, or reduce sugar amount.
Butter and sugar make cookies spread.
Check oven temperature accuracy, bake a few minutes more, or increase temperature by 25 degrees.
I wonder who ever thought up this whole pudding in cookies idea. Does anyone know? It really was so smart. Same thing with banana bread. Who was like, well I’ve got these almost rotten bananas, so I guess I’ll make bread! I think it’s so smart!
Can Cookies Be Made Without Eggs?
Use 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce in place of one egg in most baking recipes.
Some sources say to mix it with 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.
If all you have is sweetened applesauce, then simply reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe.
Applesauce is also a popular healthy replacement for oil in many baked goods.
Oh my goodness, I got a little distracted. Which isn’t uncommon. You should hear my conversations with my friend, Krysta. We just bounce all over the place with our topics but it totally works and that’s always a sign of a good friend. And I’m pretty sure she would love these cookies which is also a true friend in my book. You have to like dessert to be on my list.
How Long Will Cookies Last in the Freezer?
With proper storage, most cookies can be kept in the freezer for up to three months.

Do you use a cup or two of cinnamon chips?
Hi Pam, sorry about that, we were editing the recipe while you were probably viewing it. It’s 1 1/2 cups but the more the merrier in my opinion so 2 would be great too!
Can I substitute butter for the shortening? I’m anxious to try this recipe!!
Absolutely. You can even do half and half or browned butter!
I don’t see cinnamon chips on the ingredients list. Am I missing something? Either way, I can’t wait to try the recipe!!
Hi Samantha, sorry, I was editing the recipe as people are having a hard time tracking down the pudding so I was adding a link to buy online. It’s all updated. now. 🙂
