PUMPKIN COOKIES WITH CARAMEL FROSTING




PUMPKIN COOKIES WITH CARAMEL FROSTING

These moist, soft cookies were a delight, especially with the added frosting which was like the cherry on top for these lovely cookies.  Our friends wrote me to say how much they enjoyed the cookies I sent them home with. If you are looking for yummy cookies for the season, you may like these substantial, soft and moist cookies. Gelatin is not required for this recipe.  One can often leave the gelatin out, to be honest, and cookies typically don't need gelatin.  It is there to bind the different components of the bake mix to prevent crumbly outcomes, however, most times it is not even necessary.
