  • Food Processor
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Rolling Pin
  • Pumpkin Shaped Cookie Cutters (1 large -11cm, 1 small -5cm)
  • Baking Tray


  1. To make the coconut butter, simply place the coconut flakes into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. The time this takes will vary depending on your food processor.
  2. Put all of the ingredients for the icing into a small bowl and stir until well combined
  3. To make the cookies, pre heat the oven to 180c and line a large baking tray
  4. To make the dough, put all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix until combined – you may have to use your hands to bring the dough together
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the dough to a thickness of 0.5cm. Using pumpkin cookie cutters cut out circles and place onto a lined baking tray
  6. Repeat this step with the other half of the dough, and this time use the small pumpkin cookie cutter to cut out a window in the centre of each of the large pumpkins
  7. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove and transfer to a cooling rack
  8. Once the cookies have cooled, drizzle 1 tsp of icing over each of the cookies with the 'window' and place 2 tsp of apricot jam onto each whole cookie
  9. Place the window cookies on top of the whole cookies and dust with icing sugar if desired
  10. Share, eat and enjoy!
