Pumpkin snickerdoodle with caramel center

Fall weather seems to finally have hit the San Diego area! Its been wonderful to have cool weather and rain. Makes me want to crank up the crock pot and bake with pumpkin. So that's exactly what I did! Last fall I made some yummy pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies that I never got around to blogging (pregnancy brain all the way). So this year my friend sent  me a text and said you have to make the pumpkin snickerdoodles and put caramel in the center!! OMG one of her best ideas ever!!! Here are these uber yummy fall cookies!

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

Caramel candies

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!
