  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoons + 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
  • teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 14 Caramel candies, unwrapped


  • Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl or stand mixer beat the butter and 1/2 cup sugar together on medium speed 2 minutes. Add the pumpkin and vanilla and mix on low until incorporated.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the flour, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, ginger, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to the sugar mixture and beat on low just until combined. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop for even balls, stuff a caramel in the middle, and roll into a smooth ball in your hands (carmels should be covered by the dough.) Place on the parchment lined cookie sheet with space between so they don't stick, and refrigerate for at a couple of hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with tablespoon of cinnamon in a shallow bowl or dish.
  • One at a time, roll the cookies in the cinnamon sugar and place back on cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for 14 minutes, then allow to cool completely on cookie sheet. Or eat them while still warm and ooey gooey!
  • Store in tightly covered container for up to a week. But they won't last that long!
