Ingredients you’ll need:
You will be very happy to hear that these pumpkin cookies only requires 5 simple ingredients, most of which you may already have in your kitchen cupboards / pantry. Remember, you can find the full written recipe including measurements and steps in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Plain flour : As this is a cookie recipe and doesn’t need any raising agents, plain / all purpose flour is best! It makes for a delicious, buttery cookie!
- Sugar : The sugar helps to sweeten the cookie. You also want to use the sugar, mixed with the pumpkin spice for the pumpkin sugar coating. Use a fine, white caster sugar.
- Pumpkin spice : A mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, all spice and cloves. You can find this already mixed together in little jars online and in store.
- Dairy-free butter : The cookie is similar to shortbread, so you want to use a firm block of vegan / dairy-free butter. My personal favourites are Naturli Vegan Block and Flora Plant Butter. You want to use it chilled, directly from the fridge.
- Vegan friendly ‘Nutella’ : You want to use a vegan friendly / dairy-free chocolate and hazelnut spread. As the classic Nutella isn’t vegan, you want to use a vegan friendly alternative. My favourite is the Natures Store Cocoa & Hazelnut Spread.
How to make Vegan Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies
Buttery pumpkin cookies with a chocolate hazelnut filling.. sign me up! These cookies are absolutely scrumptious and ridiculously easy to make! Here’s a quick overview of how to make them. Find the full method in the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
- Make the dough
Mix together the flour, butter and sugar until a thick dough. Wrap this in cling film / plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill and firm up for at least 30 minutes.
- Cut the shapes
Roll out the dough on a heavily floured worktop. Use a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter to chomp out shapes and place on a lined baking tray.
Bake the cookies in the middle of the oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden in colour. Allow the cookies to cool on the tray then transfer to a wire rack to cool fully.
- Pumpkin Sugar
Mix the pumpkin spice and sugar in a bowl. Coat half of the cookies in the sugar and set aside.
Pipe the spread onto the (un-sugared) cookies, then sandwich a sugared cookie on top.
- Chill and enjoy
Allow the cookies to chill in the fridge, serve and enjoy! Delicious served with a glass of dairy-free milk or pumpkin spice latte!
