Since we’re already halfway through October, it’s socially acceptable to add pumpkin to just about anything! One of my most requested recipes is vegan or allergy-friendly pumpkin cookies. That got my wheels turning – pumpkin spice snaps, soft pumpkin cookies, or traditional chocolate chip cookies with added pumpkin. I can’t wait to continue sharing my pumpkin dessert recipes throughout this season!
When Zack and I got back from our weeklong vacation in hot and humid Orlando, FL we were greeted with perfect October TX weather. You know those few weeks when it’s in the 70s and sunny and you can actually enjoy the outdoors! This weather seriously inspired me to kick my fall baking into high gear… And of course, Zack begging for cookies!
I recently entered a blogger recipe challenge with TresOmega, I was sent 5 boxes of organic gluten-free pasta and coconut oil. While I’m still nailing down my recipes to submit, I wanted to give their coconut oil a try with this recipe. I really enjoy using a mix of dairy-free butter and coconut oil when baking cookies. It makes for a soft cookie but not overly greasy.
