Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookie Sandwiches
Now that we are in November, the holiday season is fast approaching. There is no more denying it. Some stores are already decked up and ready to convince us to shop NOW. Pffft, I am waiting until December to get any holiday shopping started. However, I am never late with my holiday exchange cookies. I always start testing recipes a good month in advance before I decide on the final ones that will make the cut into the cookie boxes I ship to friends and family. These pumpkin butterscotch cookie sandwiches will be front runners.
I used a basic, yet great pumpkin spice cookie and added some butterscotch chips to them. So simple and amazing at the same time. Sandwiching the cookies with caramel frosting just takes them over the edge. I mean, two cookies are always better than one. ALWAYS!
I love butterscotch and I think it is undervalued in baking but it’s such a comforting fall flavor that it deserves to be a front runner in any holiday cookie exchange line up.
On that cookie exchange note, Better Homes and Gardens is celebrating National Cookie Day on December 4th by hosting the World’s Largest Cookie Exchange!! They are sharing LOTS of holiday cookie ideas for your cookie exchange pleasure and some super cute tags (pictured above) that you can download for free HERE!
