Who doesn’t love a good pumpkin recipe? But let’s be honest, sometimes all the work involved with pumpkin bakes can get a little daunting. And by daunting, I mean killing any desire you might have to actually make something that includes those original orange gourds of fall. That’s when these salted caramel pumpkin cookies come in to save the day!
These cookies are super easy to make, but they taste like you spent hours in your kitchen slaving over a hot stove. The caramel bits are rich and buttery, and the pumpkin puree gives them just the right amount of sweetness without being cloying. And let’s not forget about that salted caramel topping!
The cookies are so easy to make. All you need is a super moist Spice Cake Mix. This recipe makes about 18 cookies, but you can easily double it. I would suggest storing these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or freezing them for up to 3 months.
If you’re looking for a fall dessert that’s out of the box, give these salted caramel pumpkin cookies a try. The taste and the textures will surprise you, and the process is surprisingly simple.
