Vegan Pumpkin Buttons
Serves 5 dozen
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
½ cup pureed pumpkin or winter squash
6 tablespoons raw sugar
¼ cup vegetable oil, such as grapeseed or canola
1 tablespoon maple syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon each baking powder and soda
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or pinch each cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
1. Preheat the oven to 350˚. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick liners, or grease them well.
2. In a large bowl, beat together the pumpkin, sugar, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla. In a medium bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients. Stir the ingredients together until just combined.
3. Drop the dough by rounded half-teaspoons 1 ½ inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake until firm to the touch and golden on the bottom, about 12 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
