The cookie recipe came from A Bitchen Kitchen (haha I love the name).
For the cookies:
3 3/4 cups flour1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar1 cup pumpkin puree1 large egg2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
For the coating
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (she uses ginger)
In a medium bowl combine your dry ingredients and whisk together. In your stand mixer cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add your pumkpkin and mix well before adding your egg and vanilla. Slowly mix in your dry ingredients. Cover and store in your fridge for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350°
Take about 2 1/2 tablespoons of your mix and form a ball around a caramel candy. Bake for 10-12 minutes. If you want to eat a cookie say the next day and want the center gooey again a quick 10 seconds in the microwave does the trick!
