  • ½ cup organic evaporated cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 350°
Step 2:
Cream together vegan butter and sugar, until smooth, either in a standing mixer or mix by hand using a pastry whisk. Add vanilla extract, cream cheese alternative, pumpkin, and maple syrup and blend until smooth. Add sea salt, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Mix until ingredients are uniform, about 1 minute.

Step 7:
Let the cookies cool on a cookie sheet for about 7-10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Step 8:
For presentation, place ½ cup GO Veggie! Classic Plain Cream Cheese in a piping bag with a star tip. Create a small cream cheese swirl on each cookie before serving.
