Ingredients (Yields 22 Cookies):

For the Cookies

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar (plus more for topping)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 heaping cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp plant-based milk

For the Frosting

  • 1 30 serving jar of our Barista Blend
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp pumpkin butter
  • 1 splash plant-based milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp each ground cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups powdered sugar


  1. Add softened butter to a large mixing bowl and cream with a mixer for 1 minute. Add sugar, brown sugar and vanilla and beat for 1 more minute. Then add pumpkin and mix again.
  2. Sift dry ingredients over butter and sugar to combine. Mix, add almond milk, and mix until a soft dough is formed. Freeze for 15 minutes, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, and position a rack in the center of the oven.
  3. Scoop out 1 Tbsp amounts of dough and roll into balls. Place on a clean baking sheet 2 inches apart to allow for spreading. Dip a glass into cane sugar and then gently smash the cookie ball down into a disc. Bake on the center rack for 10-12 minutes or very slightly golden brown.
  4. For the frosting: Beat softened butter until light and fluffy. Then add vanilla, spices, and pumpkin butter, Barista Blend, and mix again. Add powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time and continue mixing until thick and creamy. Drizzle in a small amount of plant-based milk to thin. Once cooled, frost cookies and top with a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon. Enjoy!
