  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream the vegan buttery spread and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the molasses, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree and mix until smooth.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients a little at a time while mixing together on low speed.
  5. Pour a few tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl. Form balls of dough about one inch in diameter and roll in the sugar. Place the balls on the lined cookie sheets and flatten them slightly.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake. Let cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough. Makes about 24 cookies.

Recipe Notes

These cookies should work well with most brands of gluten free flour. My recipe for gluten free flour blend works well, too.

If you aren't gluten free, you can use regular flour.

If you aren't dairy free, go ahead and use regular dairy butter.

You should be able to freeze this cookie dough if you like. Scoop onto a cookie sheet, and freeze for one hour, then store the cookie dough balls in a freezer bag. You can store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
