Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting

If you saw this post and then this post, you know I'm traveling this week! But fear not! My buddy Holly from Life in the Lofthouse has stepped in to share her Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting with us!

Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting! Soft cookies with pumpkin and warm spices topped with easy caramel frosting from A guest post from Life in the Lofthouse.

The first thing I think I ever said to Holly was something along the lines of “Oh my God! Look at your hair! It’s so big and beautiful! Are you sure you’re not Southern?!” And then I stalked her facebook page and saw how gorgeous her husband and children were I decided the universe would never allow us to be friends because I’d probably get her dirty if I came within ten yards of her.

And then… and then I got to know her and learned that she’s as wonky and edgy and crazy as I am fell instantly in love with her!

I have made a lot of acquaintances over the years blogging. And I have also made some friends. People who help out like Holly (and Mary and Stacey and several others). We have to deal with all sorts of stuff as bloggers… techy stuff that makes my eyeballs hurt, rude people who think the anonymity the internet provides makes it OK to be mean, the ever-changing social media algorithms we’re always trying to stay in front of, etc. and it’s such a joy to have become friends with folks like these guys who encourage, teach, lead, share and sometimes just listen.

And Ima let Holly take it from here!
Hi, everyone! I'm Holly Lofthouse, the creator of Life In The and I'm super stoked to fill in for Miss Mandy, while she's away! I absolutely love her blog, and have been a huge stalker, I mean fan, for a while now. ;) Not only do I adore her recipes, I adore Mandy. I love her honesty and humor in her writing. She is a doll!

My food blog is Life in the It's full of easy, yet awesome recipes. I've been blogging for 4 years now, and I still love it (most days anyway! ha) I also work for Pillsbury as a recipe creator. It has been a blast working for them!

I have 3 kiddos, and married to my hubby for 8 years now. Between school, gymnastics and homework we have a crazy busy life, so I'm all about simple recipes I can get on the table fast!
Today I thought I'd share these AMAZING Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Frosting. They are heaven. Seriously, heaven. And surprisingly easy to make. The cookies are packed with pumpkin spice flavor, and that caramel frosting just takes them to the next level!

Thank you, Mandy, for letting me take over today! xoxo

Hi there! While I’m not able to respond to every comment, I try hard to answer any questions that haven’t been addressed in the post, recipe or in other comments.

I can tell you now 1) I have no idea if you can substitute Minute Rice or brown rice in my recipes because I’ve never used them and 2) If I know how to convert a recipe to a Crock Pot version, I will make a note about it (otherwise, I don’t know).

And though I may not respond to them all, I do read each and every comment and I LOVE to hear from you guys! Thanks, y’all! - Mandy
