It’s Cookie Time!  Yes, we’ve been making, eating and sharing A LOT of cookies lately and today, one more…

Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting

So many different foods are associated with the season and holidays of fall, but one stands out among the rest…..PUMPKIN! Traditionally, pumpkin pie is the go-to dessert for Thanksgiving but these Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting make a wonderful addition (or dare I say, substitute) to any Thanksgiving dessert table.  This recipe is easy to prepare and makes a large batch, about 4 dozen.  It’s a good thing, too. We took them to church where they were enjoyed very much.  Thankfully, we sampled them before leaving home because nothing was left but an empty tray and a couple of crumbs!

Here’s the Recipe:

Cookies: 

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 can pumpkin (15 oz. NOT pie mix)
  • 2 Eggland’s Best eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cups flour

Frosting:

  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • pinch salt

Cookies:

 Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars

Add Eggland’s Best eggs and vanilla and mix well

For this recipe I used Eggland’s Best high quality, extra large eggs.  With all the holiday baking that I’m doing now this choice just made sense. Eggland’s Best are packed fresher so they stay fresher than ordinary eggs.  Because Eggland’s Best contains double the omega-3’s, four times the vitamin D and ten times the vitamin E as regular eggs I’m sneaking in some “good stuff” with each recipe.  Also, EB eggs are only 60 calories each (compared to 70 in ordinary eggs) and have 25% less saturated fat.  I mentioned we were trying to “cut back” before the holiday eating began, and every little bit helps!
