Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cookies from Cake Mix

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!

You only need 5 ingredients:

Spice Cake Mix

Pumpkin Puree

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Caramel Bits

Salted Caramel Frosting

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.

Autumn Cookie Board

Autumn Cookie Board

In the mood for a quick fall board. This cookie board is sure to please everyone in the mood for a sweet treat. This board would actually work year round by adding or removing the seasonal decor. I picked up the mini pumpkins in the produce section of our local grocery store and they really brought the board to life. The chocolate pairs well with the perfect glass of red wine. I hope this display inspires you to try your own seasonal board and any leftovers can be placed in a Ziploc bag for snacks throughout the week. Be Well-Omniley

Happy Holidays! I hope this post finds you well. We are only a few sleep nights away from Christmas, and I wanted to share my amazing butter cookies recipe. I find myself indulging in these every Christmas season.

I only cook these for Christmas as I have no self-control when it comes to them. One of the key ingredients is pure lemon extract. It breaks off the sweetness, so pairing them with a cold glass of milk or Peppermint flavored bourbon cream is oh-so-delicious. 

One key thing I have learned over the years with baking these cookies is to make them thin and to bake them on parchment paper to avoid major puffing and spreading. I think this is my best batch yet. I did a simple egg wash topping for a crispy finish.

I hope you have time to try them in the near future. They are so delicious! As always, thank you for following me on my journey. Seasons Greetings! Omniley
