Bonus Treats: Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting {Let's Dish}

I love pumpkin bread--here's my favourite recipe--and decided to try out these cookies I had pinned on my "cookies" board. The link is from Danelle who blogs at Let's Dish.

I really enjoyed the cookies, and not being a huge fan of frosting/icing--I actually liked the caramel frosting too!

My favourite way to eat them, though, is sans frosting...tastes like a cross between pumpkin pie, cake and bread :D


Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tblsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour

3 tblsp butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup icing sugar

1. Pre-heat oven to 350.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars.

3. Add the eggs and vanilla--mix well. Stir in pumpkin.

4. In a medium bowl, whisk [or sift] together the baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, salt and flour.

5. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.

6. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and press down to flatten them a little bit. Bake for 10-12 minutes.


1. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, cream, and brown sugar over medium heat.

2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture just begins to boil; remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

3. Cool then stir in confectioner's sugar. Spread frosting over cooled cookies.

4. Enjoy!
