These moist, spiced pumpkin sprinkle cookies are festively filled with fall sprinkles and packed with so much delicious pumpkin spice flavor. An easy cookie and a must have on any cookie platter.

I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #PumpkinWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Pumpkin Sprinkle Cookies

Can you feel it? We did yesterday in St. Louis, the cooler weather is on it’s way. Fall is in the air and I’m ready to celebrate all things Fall. I’m so excited. It’s my favorite time of year. 

This week 33 bloggers and I are celebrating our intense love of all things pumpkin, with #PumpkinWeek hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures. Collectively, we will be sharing 140+ fantastic pumpkin recipes for all your Fall events. From breakfast to dinner, sweet to savory, baked goods to drinks, there’s something for everyone.

Special thanks to ALL of our sponsors for providing the prize packages. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway all the way at the bottom of the post. There are some great things to be won!

Also, big thanks to Sweets & Treats, one of our sponsors for this event, who generously gave us all some sprinkles and other fun items to make some of the fun recipes this week and that I used in these cookies. And another huge thanks to Dixie Crystals who sent a ton of sugar to use in our wonderful recipes this week! I used Dixie Crystals to make these Pumpkin Sprinkle Cookies and the rest of the weeks recipes.

About these Pumpkin Sprinkle Cookies – they are so soft and full of such great spiced pumpkin flavor. Super simple cookies to make and depending on the size you scoop, you can get about 4 dozen from this recipe but I usually aim for 3 dozen. 

I love using sprinkles in these cookies because as soft as they are, that little bit of soft crunch that comes from the added sprinkles is perfection.

Pumpkin Sprinkle Cookies

This recipe calls for ½ cup of canned pumpkin. So what do you do with the rest?

How do I store opened canned pumpkin?

If you plan to use the pumpkin puree the next day, you can simply cover the can with tinfoil and store it in the fridge.

If you think it may be a few days, I usually scoop the remaining amount into a container with an airtight lid and it stores for up to a week.

I have dozens of recipes on this site to help you use up your canned pumpkin. But this week alone, I’m sure you’ll find something delicious to try.

Can I use pumpkin pie filling instead of canned pumpkin puree?

No. Not in this recipe and not in most baked goods recipes. The difference between the two, is that pumpkin pie filling is already complete with sugar and spices, however removing those extra items from the recipe would change it drastically. Pumpkin Puree is simply a combination of cooked and mashed different varieties of squash. Nope, not even pumpkin. It has no added sugar or spices and is typically pure (or should be).
