Soft & Scrumptious Pumpkin Cookies 🍪


Never let someone tell you you can't have pumpkin cookies in summer! These are super easy to make, taste like a chai latte with pumpkin (I miss iced chai's!) and I made S O many of these I decided to leave some out for my neighbor, to make sure she is doing OK during this quarantine. 😃



For the Pumpkin Cookies

1/2 cup Vegan Butter
1/2 cup White Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/3 cup Pumpkin Purée (Canned or Fresh)
1 and 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Salt

For the Maple Glaze

1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp Oat Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions

Add the vegan butter, white sugar, and brown sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and cream them together and then add in the vanilla and pumpkin purée.

Then add in the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and mix in by hand (don’t use the electric mixer for this part). It will make a thick cookie dough that is a bit wet, a little too wet to roll with your hands.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Scoop the cookie dough in roughly 2 Tbsp sized scoops out onto a parchment-lined baking tray, aiming for around 20 cookies.

Bake for 15 minutes. When you remove them from the oven they will be very soft. Let them cool on the tray before moving them.

Prepare your maple glaze by mixing up the powdered sugar, maple syrup, oat milk, and vanilla in a bowl.

When the cookies have cooled use a teaspoon to drizzle the maple glaze over the cookies and enjoy!

I always have a desire to have french pastries, and Nick loves my madeleines so I try to make them whenever I can! This time around I decided to have fun with my Butterfly Pea Powder and make the tips a little blue. 💙
