Autumn Clouds Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies ~ From Vegetate, Vegan Cooking and Food Blog

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”Henry David Thoreau

From The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur by Kelly Peloza, page 126.

This wonderful, moist & chewy cookie recipe called for pumpkin puree so instead of using canned, we roasted a whole little sugar pie pumpkin, peeled the skin off, pureed the pumpkin flesh for the cookies, and roasted the seeds to enjoy as a salty snack.

The fresh pumpkin, chocolate chips, and spices were soooo good that they made eating a cookie taste like eating a chocolate-drizzled pumpkin pie! We enjoyed these with some ice cold hemp milk.

Pumpkin Fact (from Wikipedia): The Irish brought this tradition of pumpkin carving to America! The tradition originally started with the carving of turnips. When the Irish immigrated to the U.S., they found pumpkins a-plenty and they were much easier to carve for their ancient holiday.

  1. We ate a similar cookie for the first time this past week. Delicious. I must procure the recipe…guess I’ll be buying another cookbook. I too love your photo set-ups. Cheers!

    PS — That Thoreau quote is divine! It makes me want to paint it on a plank and hang it in my kitchen. I would love to know where on earth you found it. He’s one of my favs.

    • Hi Shannon! Thanks for your great comments. :) The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur is a GREAT cookbook to have. Besides this and many other great recipes there is also the best ever soft-baked chocolate chip cookie recipe in there. I’m so glad you noticed my little photo setups, too. I have a great time cooking and photographing all of this stuff. I am a huge Thoreau fan too, and I found that little gem of a quote out there on the internet somewhere.
