As you can see I had enough pumpkin to make a few recipes! I've done the pie, cupcakes for the World Vegan Day and cookies (made them twice and still have pumpkin to one more batch!). I was inspired by this recipe from the blog have cake, will travel - one of my favourite blogs ever. I hadn't regular chocolate chips and decided to try the white ones, even not being sure if they would suit with pumpkin. And I really enjoyed the combination and also Matteo, who has eating most of the cookies!
I didn't follow the recipe and decided to try something new, so here's my recipe:
Pumpkin white chocolate chips cookie
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Cook the pumpkin and when it's cold, dry the water and mash it. Using your stand mixer, cream together margarine and sugar. Stir in pumpkin and vanilla until combined. Add flour, nutmeg, salt and baking powder and mix. Stir in chips. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions, place on parchment pape and flatten your cookies. Preheat oven to 180°C and bake the cookies for 15 minutes or until golden on top and around the edges. Wait 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
