Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cookies


I don't get tired of pumpkin.  I could truly eat pumpkin desserts & savory dishes year round.  I try to refrain from doing so only so that I can get my fill in the fall & it will feel like a special treat but my willpower doesn't always work.  These Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cookies are no exception to that craving.  I love that these have just the right amount of spice, gooey & crunch mixed together to make the perfect cookie. 

I'm super excited about this cookie video created by my friend & highly talented technical genius & the owner of Double Name Productions.    I'm also happy to let you know that there will be more cookie videos in the near future, so stay tuned & eat these cookies while you wait!
