One of the yummiest ways to usher in the fall season is by baking some tasty treats. You’ll LOVE these 10 fall cookie recipes; some of the best I’ve found!
I figure today is the PERFECT day to post about fall cookies since it’s September 22nd – the official first day of fall 2022. Happy Autumnal Equinox!
10 Best Fall Cookie Recipes
1. Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Frosting
– Betty Crocker
These cookies are a tried and trusted fall staple in my household. Don’t skip the brown butter! It’s a simple step that adds a rich, nutty flavor that really compliments the pumpkin cookies. YUM!
2. Caramel-Apple Shortbread Cookies
– Taste of Home
Cookies with apples are often hard to come by. Apple pie recipes and cakes loaded with apples are a dime a dozen but cookie recipes can be harder to find. Check out this enticing recipe for an excellent balance of caramel, apple, and shortbread!
3. Carrot Cake Cookies
– Love & Lemons
My husband is a huge carrot cake fan. But sometimes it’s nice to have a simpler snack that doesn’t require a plate and fork. That’s where these carrot cake cookies come in. Easy to make, easy to transport, and definitely easy to eat!
4. Butter Pecan Cookies
– Simply Recipes – Elise Bauer
Something about butter pecan makes me think of cool fall days, warm sweaters and snuggling up with cozy blankets by the fire. These are the perfect treat to have as the days are getting shorter and fall is in the air.
5. Mrs. Sigg’s Snickerdoodles
– Allrecipes – Beth Sigworth
Light and fluffy with cinnamon and sugar, snickerdoodles are a crowd-pleaser. Be sure to keep an eye on them while they’re in the oven so you don’t overbake them. Soft and chewy is key with snickerdoodles!
6. Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Scotchies
– Sally’s Baking Addiction – Sally McKenney
Instead of the standard oatmeal raisin cookie, why not mix things up a bit and try pairing butterscotch with your oats? This is a delicious combination that’s perfect for autumn days and nights.
7. Soft and Chewy White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
– Live Well Bake Often – Danielle
The sweetness of white chocolate chips combined with the tartness of dried cranberries makes for a perfect balance in these tasty cookies!
8. Chai Cookies
– In Bloom Bakery – Ginny Dyer
While it’s common to immediately think of pumpkin spice lattes when fall rolls around, chai tea is another yummy drink option to celebrate fall. Why not transfer these enticing flavors into cookie form?!
9. Gooey Salted Caramel Vanilla Cookies
– Kevin & Amanda
I’m a sucker for anything that has “gooey” in its name! What’s not to love about salted caramel and vanilla? Delicious!
10. Brown Butter Toffee Cookies
– Sugar Spun Run – Sam
I have a good friend who makes the most incredible toffee during the holidays and this recipe makes me think of her. The combination of brown butter and toffee is to die for!
