How to make Pumpkin Cheesecake Frosting
- First, I whipped up the pumpkin puree along with my favorite vegan cream cheese (toffuti).
- Thereafter, I flavored with little sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Doesn’t that sound absolutely attractive?? Well, when this idea came to my mind I had no idea that vegan cream cheese and pumpkin puree could blend so well into such a delicious treat.
- Finally, when it was time to frost the cookies I fell short of the frosting.
Because …..I licked it all 🙂 its sooo irresistible. Luckily I had some more of the ingredients left and so I quickly whipped up another batch of the frosting. This time I worked hard on controlling my fingers to keep them away from my mouth 🙂
How to make Coffee Flax Cookies
- For the cookies, I simply combined flax meal, almond flour, baking powder and salt.
- Thereafter, I added mashed bananas, diluted instant coffee, vanilla extract and little oil.
- Afterwards, I mixed up the batter with a spoon and then placed the flat round shaped cookies on the baking sheet.
- Lastly, I baked the cookies in a preheated oven for 25 minutes.
Then, I topped the cookies with the frosting.
Just before serving the kids I decorated these cookies.
