Servings: 15 cookies
- 130 grams Otto's Cassava Flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1/3 cup avocado oil
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 stick butter 4 Tbsp. softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1 Tbsp. milk or milk substitute
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together brown sugar, pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, egg and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract until well combined.
Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix together until everything is just incorporated.
Drop rounded tablespoons full of dough onto baking sheet, using wet fingers to help shape the dough into round mounds about 2" apart.
Bake for 6 minutes, then remove from oven and use your thumb or the bottom of a tablespoon to press an indent into the center of each cookie.
Bake cookies for another 5-6 minutes until done. Cookies are soft when done. Do not overcook.
Allow cookies ample time to cool before frosting.
To make frosting, combine butter, sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and milk in the bowl of your standing mixer and mix until well combined.
Add frosting to a piping bag and then pipe frosting into the center of each thumbprint cookie.
I love the pumpkin spiced homemade frosting center, but you could use store-bought frosting instead.
Double this recipe! These cookies go fast, fast, fast!
