This recipe makes 24 cookies.
1 cup melted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
1 cups granulated sugar
1/2 tsp ground Nutmeg
1/5 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 can pumpkin puree
Sea Salt Caramel Drizzle
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup half & half
1 tsp salt
1 oz butter
Step 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2. In a large bowl, add your melted butter, sugar, baking power, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk the ingredients until fully combined.
Step 3. Whisk in your eggs and vanilla extract. Next add the pumpkin puree and mix thoroughly. Next, add the flour one cup at a time.
Step 4. Using a medium-sized cookie scoop, fill your greased baking sheet with pumpkin cookie dough. Place in the oven for 12 minutes.
Step 5. While the cookies are baking, prepare the sea salt caramel drizzle. In a medium saucepan, add your packed brown sugar, half & half, salt, and butter on medium to low heat. Stir until ingredients have fully combined and until the mixture is at a very low boil with small bubbles. Pour your caramel sauce into a small, glass bowl and reserve.
Step 6. Remove the cookies from the oven and set on a cooling rack for 5 to 7 minutes. Place your cookies on the serving tray of your choice and with a spoon, drizzle the caramel sauce generously on each cookie. Garnish with a small sprinkle of sea salt & enjoy!
