Buttery soft roll cookies filled with naturally sweetened pumpkin butter. These pumpkin cookies are not overly sweet, contain no refined sugar and make great diabetic friendly cookies, snacks or desserts. They are pretty much a homemade vegan version of fig rolls or Fig Newtons with spiced date pumpkin filling. The good thing about pumpkin is that its natural sweetness contributes much to sweeten goodies without the need for refined sugar.

After more than 15 years spent living in countries with colder winters, I’ve grown quite fond of the seasonal fall and winter produce.
