Combine the cookie ingredients in a bowl, toss in some melted butter and coconut oil, and mix it all up.

The batter will look very oily, but I promise, you didn’t mess up! There’s a lot of oil in these cookies, but it keeps them so incredibly soft and chewy – totally worth the calories.

If you’re still worried about shaping, just refrigerate the batter for 20 minutes or so, so they don’t spread too much in the oven.

Roll the dough into 1 1/2-inch balls (or smaller if you’re going for a mini sandwich cookie), and toss it around in you pumpkin spice-sugar mixture. Coat it reeeally well, you want each cookie to be bursting with pumpkin!

Place them on ungreased baking sheets, and press them down just a little bit. Bake them no longer than 7 minutes, then let them cool completely.

Mix up your delicious pumpkin cream cheese icing, pipe it on half your cooled cookies, then top them off with another cookie.

  1. I was hoping for pumpkin actually in the recipe, not just the pumpkin spice. 🙁 I have a TON of cooked pumpkin just waiting to be cooked into something, and was hoping this was it, as my daughter loves snickerdoodles. We may have to try the recipe anyway–maybe I can tweak it a bit…… thank for sharing. If we try it, I’ll let you know how it goes!

  2. We should be twins, KARRIE. I too bought up all the X-mas candy, and I always love cake mix cookies. And these are the best. All that caramel goodness!
