Pumpkin Caramel Cookies

My top shelf of my freezer is full of pumpkin treats. I love fall and I love the combination of pumpkin and spices. Could there really be anything better than pumpkin? I’m thinking no.

In my opinion, you can never have enough pumpkin cookie recipes in your recipe book. This one will definetely move to the front of your baking list. It’s a delicious pumpkin cookie recipe with spice throughout and a sweet caramel frosting on top. This pumpkin cookies recipe is one of the softest, moistest cookies I’ve eaten. Pumpkin Caramel Cookies rock!!

I made these cookies for an event, but they almost didn’t make it because the family kept eating them. But it isn’t just the cookie that is good. The frosting is to die for. Really, I’ve got to come up with another recipe with that frosting.

But in the meantime, try these. They are perfect.

  2. Drop by tablespoon onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven, and while cookies are still warm, press down lightly on each cookie with the back of a cup to flatten slightly. Allow cookies to cool for several minutes on the cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.
