Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter softened
  • 2 tbsp allulose sugar substitute or Swerve
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum optional
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Pinch of nutmeg

For the optional frosting

  • 3 tbsp cream cheese softened
  • 2 tbsp powdered allulose or erythritol
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper.
  • Add the butter and sugar to a mixing bowl. Beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Whisk the egg in a small bowl and reserve 1 tbsp to brush on the tops of the cookies. Add the remaining egg, and the rest of the cookie ingredients to the bowl and mix together until well combined.
  • Scoop the batter into 12 balls and arrange evenly on the baking sheet. Flatten the balls with your hands or with the bottom of a glass so they are about 1/4" thick circles. Brush the tops with egg.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until firm and golden.
  • Meanwhile, mix the glaze ingredients in a bowl. Beat until fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Once the cookies have cooled completely, spread the glaze on the tops and serve.

Notes

  • The xanthan gum is optional, but it gives the cookies a bit more chew, so they are less crumbly.
  • The frosting is also optional. It can also be served on the side.
  • The addition of coconut flour gives these cookies a firmer texture, which I prefer. If you don't have coconut flour or don't wish to mix them, you can use 1 1/2 cups of almond flour and omit the coconut flour. You cannot, however omit the almond flour.
