i ♥ pumpkin.

by caroline

OK, so fall is definitely my all-time favorite season. But aren’t the foods and flavors that come hand-in-hand with the crisp breezes and changing leaves absolutely to die for?

Like I said the other day, apple is definitely at the top of my list as a fall food favorite, but I also absolutely adore pumpkin. Before I went gluten-free, I would frequently indulge in everything pumpkin a baked good could offer.

Now that I’m gluten-free … I still do that too! Except now it’s in a deliciously-gluten-free-kinda way.

When I was younger, I thought one of the best baked goods my mom could possibly make were iced pumpkin cookies. I could kill an entire batch in one sitting — they were just that good. These days, I still love baking with pumpkin, and I figured it was about time I figure out a gluten-free recipe for those beloved Iced Pumpkin Cookies. I found this recipe on and adapted it to make it gluten-free and vegan. I had no idea it was going to be a complete smash hit …


Not only are these cookies divine, but the smell that will waft through your home is equally heavenly. Enjoy every bite — and if you need more pumpkin (I know I do), then check out two of my other faves:
