Pumpkin Cookies that are dipped, dolloped and coated with coconut goodness. Who says pumpkin's not for summer?
When I say “pumpkin” what do you think of?
Probably waking up on a chilly morning and sitting around a fresh-from-the-oven Baked Pumpkin French Toast. Or maybe you picture sitting in front of a fire, drinking hot cocoa and munching on fresh baked Pumpkin Bread or Pumpkin Muffins.
Whatever your brain imagines, it probably isn’t something that really screams “Summer” at you. Which means, you probably don’t have any plans to eat it until October 1st hits, and you can’t find anything that doesn’t include pumpkin on Pinterest.
Well, today my peeps, we are going to change all yo’ misconceptions about our orange, fruity friend. Sidenote: Did you know that pumpkin is a fruit and not a vegetable? Don’t worry, I just wikipedia’d it to make sure I had my facts straight.
And we all know Wikipedia never lies. Right? Except don’t answer that.
If pumpkin isn’t really your “Summer style” I can almost guarantee that coconut is. I don’t know about you, but anything that is used in a Daiquiri makes me think of sitting on a beach, with the sun beating down on me, while I listen to crashing of waves and seagulls.
And, now we’re going to add “and eating pumpkin cookies” to that image… because these babies are covered in coconut and filled with fluffy, whipped coconut cream!
Did I mention that they are also really, really easy? And covered in white chocolate. And contain no butter OR white flour. If my case for pumpkin being perfect for warm weather eating didn’t convince you, then that must have right? Please say yes.
If not, I have one final thought for you. The whole “no-butter-or-white-flour-thing?” Ya, that makes them figure friendly. So you can eat cookies WHILE wearing a bikini. Y-E-S. If that doesn’t getcha, I don’t know what will.
