Have you had enough of the pumpkin spice craze yet? As if.
We have exactly twenty-one days of the Thanksgiving season—if that’s a thing—left until it’s time to turn our taste buds to gingerbread and peppermint. Let’s not waste one day of the short time that we have left ignoring the flavors that we waited all summer for. PUMPKIN SPICE! Make a batch of these delicious vegan pumpkin spice cookies and you’ll have one cookie for each day of the Thanksgiving countdown. Think of them as advent cookies for the great harvest.
Vegan pumpkin spice cookies. Yum, yum, yum. These savory soft pillows of love are made with real pumpkin puree and all of the spices that you’d expect to find in a pumpkin pie. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. I even snuck in a few grinds of fresh black pepper to give it a teensy-weeny bit of heat.
If you like pumpkin pie you’ll love these cookies. If you don’t love pumpkin pie—weirdo—you’ll love these cookies. If you don’t like these cookies, well, you confuse me.
When I said that these are like soft pillows I meant it. They rise up so beautifully and when you sink your teeth into them it’s like biting into a puffy gentle cloud. The pumpkin puree adds extra moisture to them so they’re not crispy or chewy like a typical cookie. These are almost like individual cakes that are firmer, so you don’t need a fork.
If you want to put a cinnamon glaze on them go right ahead. I for one don’t have a big sweet tooth so I like mine plain. My husband loved the glaze. This recipe makes approximately two dozen cookies so glaze half and leave half of them naked.
I love these savory cookies with tea in the afternoon. They’re also great with coffee in the morning. And of course, they make a great dessert. No surprise there.
Don’t let the pumpkin spice season pass you by without one more hurrah. Make these vegan pumpkin spice cookies and savor every last bite of the season.
I saw my first Christmas commercial last night, then the network had the audacity to show two more. I almost closed my eyes and put my hands over my ears. I’m like a kid who doesn’t want her mommy to leave her at daycare. I’m hanging on to the last leg of fall with all my might because the year is just slipping away from me too fast. How about you, do you think it’s too soon for Christmas commercials?
Do you like seeing Christmas decorations and commercials in October and early November?
