The bottom of those pillowy pumpkin cookies begins the best way many nice cookies do: creaming the (vegan) butter and (coconut) sugar so as to add air pockets, which makes them gentle and fluffy. Then we add in pumpkin purée, which retains the cookies moist and tender, plus pumpkin pie spice for BIG fall taste. Yum!
