What is it about mini food that makes it tastes especially good? Is it because it’s built-in portion control so we can enjoy a treat without guilt?

Or perhaps bite-sized food tastes so good because it looks so good! Thankfully, this Caramel Pumpkin Cookie Cup recipe makes it easy to create adorable, delicious morsels.

I love caramel and pumpkin together, especially during crisp, Fall weather. And if you start with canned pumpkin and caramel sauce, it’s ridiculously easy to whip up a dessert that highlights this delicious flavor combination.

How to Make Caramel Pumpkin Cookie Cups

This Caramel Pumpkin Cookie Cup recipe is so simple. You just need some simple ingredients and a few minutes!

Step 1: Make the cups

This step seems the hardest, but it’s actually really easy! You just need to roll sugar cookie dough into balls and put one ball in each mini muffin cup spot.

Next, just pop the muffin tin into a preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. After they’ve finished baking, use a pastry tamper or the bottom of a shot glass to shape each piece of dough into a cookie cup crust by pressing down in the center of each ball.

Let the cookie cup crusts cool completely.

Step 2: Fill cookie cups

Once the cookie cup crusts have cooled, it’s time to fill them. Just spoon some canned pumpkin into each cookie cup.

Top with whipped cream and drizzle on some caramel sauce. So easy!

See? They turn out really cute and they take hardly any effort at all!

Two simple steps and less than half an hour from start to finish.
