Pumpkin season is in full swing, so there are plenty of pumpkin recipes to choose from. Here is a twist on the pumpkin cookie with some dulce de leche.
Here are the ingredients that you will need in order to make this recipe:
- 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature, or slightly melted
- ¾ cup sugar
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup pumpkin
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ½ cup butterscotch chips, sauce, dulce de leche or bake club caramel
Here are the directions that you need to follow in order to complete this recipe.
First, you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, you want to grease an 8×8” square pan.
Then, you need to combine the butter and sugars in a bowl until the entire mixture is homogenous. Then, you want to add the egg, oil and vanilla until it becomes one glossy batter. The next step is to simply stir in the pumpkin until the entire mixture is well combined.
Then you want to add the flour, salt and baking soda and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon and mix until everything is just combined. Now, you want to spread the dough evenly in the fully greased pan, making sure it gets into the corners and the pan is completely filled in.
Now, in a small bowl, you need to mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the 2 teaspoons cinnamon together until they are well combined. Then, sprinkle the top of the batter with cinnamon sugar mixture. The next step is to scatter the chips or caramel sauce over the surface of the mixture, adding as much or as little as you would like. Using a butter knife, swirl these items with the batter.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the cookie slab has puffed and set, with light brown edges. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.
