Soft Pumpkin Cookies

These soft pumpkin cookies are perfect for the autumn season,  the delicate taste of cinnamon paired with a light coconut frosting make these cookies unlike any you have had before. If you make this dessert once, you sure to make it again. I hope you enjoy!

Makes: 12 cookies.


  • 260g flour
  • 100g soft margarine
  • 90g soft brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 baking powder
  • 1/2 baking soda
  • 1/2 vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 200g pumpkin (alternatively pumpkin puree)
  • coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).
  2. Dice the pumpkin and add it to a pot of water, bring it to a boil and then let it simmer until the pumpkin is tender (it should take around 10minutes).
  3. Drain the pumpkin and set it aside to cool down.
  4. In the meantime, cream the butter and the sugar together until it is cohesive.
  5. Add the vanilla to the butter and sugar mix.
  6. Make the pumpkin puree by mashing the pumpkin with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Then, add this puree to the other ingredients in the bowl. Combine the mixture together until it makes a sticky dough consistency.
  7. Prepare a baking tray with baking paper and scoop out a tablespoon worth of cookie dough for each cookie, mould them into circles and flatten them slightly.
  8. Place the tray into the middle of the preheated oven and bake the cookies for 10 minutes. fullsizeoutput_43.jpeg
  9. Take them out and let them cool for 15-20 minutes (this will allow them to harden).
  10. Whilst they cool down, prepare the frosting. Take the cream from the top of the coconut milk (don’t add the liquid), then add the two tablespoons of powdered sugar.
  11. Dip the cookies into the frosting and sprinkle with cinnamon. Note: if you aren’t eating them immediately keep them in the fridge so the frosting doesn’t melt.Simple Coffee Photo Recipe Pinterest Graphic.png
