Coming from a family with food allergies, I understand how difficult holidays can be. Here are some of my own recipes that are sure to be crowd pleasers this Halloween.

1 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup canned pumpkin

1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Stir all ingredients together until completely mixed. Place spoonfuls of batter on lightyly greased cookie sheet. Bake 18-21 minutes.

Dairy-Free Caramel Apple Dip

1/2 cup sugar
3 tbs light corn syrup
1 cup vanilla flavored soy milk

Boil soy milk over medium heat until it reduces to 1/2 cup. In a separate pot, bring sugar and corn syrup and half of the remaining milk to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly. Add the remaining milk and cook over medium-low heat (stirring often) until a the mixture reaches a caramel color. When it begins to cool, use it as a dip for whole apples or apple slices.

Cream the butter and sugars. Mix in egg (or egg replacer and water) and sunflower butter. Mix all dry ingredients separately, then stir in. Refrigerate the dough for 2-3 hours. Preheat oven to 375. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten in a criss-cross pattern with a fork. Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden.
