OK not the best picture!! I need to work on my food photography..clearly. Too bad it's not a bird! These would be a perfect fall treat! The next time I make them I will do things a little bit different. I'll use more pumpkin, and cinnamon than what the recipes calls for. It's sort of like a lightly pumpkin flavored snickerdoodle. So here is the recipe..
Caramel Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 + 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
1/3 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons + 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (14 ounce) bag Rolos (for soft middles) or Kraft Caramels (for hard, chewy middles) (unwrap about 30 of them)
ps. I so didn't spell check or anything.. this thing is probably full of mistake!
