These soft and pillowy cookies are so good, you won't believe how easy they are to make.
Every lady has her secrets. One of mine is Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting.
Ultra soft and delicate, with just the right amount of sweet, these fall treats give the impression that I painstakingly measured, mixed, and scooped each and every one. The truth? Lean in, and I’ll share the juicy secret with you.
These fluffy, fabulous pumpkin cookies are made of only three ingredients: A can of pumpkin puree, a box of Better Crocker Spice Cake Mix, and a dash of pumpkin pie spice.
That’s right — no eggs, no oil, and almost no need to measure. It’s miraculous. Simple stir, scoop, and bake.
We can direct the effort saved on the cookies towards loftier goals, a.k.a. salted caramel buttercream frosting. Although the frosting is a few additional steps, it’s still easy breezy and absolutely worth the extra minutes at the stove.
Heat the dark brown sugar, cream, and butter together, beat in powdered sugar, then frost away. No fancy equipment or candy thermometer needed.
The final flourish: pumpkin seeds. They add just the right crunch and are oh-so-cute!
Bake these easy cake mix pumpkin cookies and bask in the praise from appreciative friends and family.
(Your secret is safe with me.)
