I've always been a sucker for anything pumpkin so last weekend I made these caramel frosted pumpkin cookies. They are quite yummy if I do say so myself. The cookie itself has all the great fall spices I love (I think I even added some extra to it) and isn't super sweet. It pairs so well with the sweet and hardened caramel frosting. Carmel you say? Yep. I was skeptical on that too, and wouldn't normally say that I love caramel . . . but it's perfect with the cookie. The frosting recipe called for vanilla and maple extract, but since I had no maple, I just used vanilla . . . and I would keep it like that in the future. I've still got some cookies left . . . come on over!
I'm keeping this recipe for sure!
