These simple fried cookies were inspired by @lisakthrives via Instagram. I put a fall themed twist on her coconut cookies and made Pumpkin Chai Cookies and paired it with a dairy-free cream cheese frosting. I have a busted bottom element in my oven right now so it’s been a rough, restricted week making all my food without baking or roasting! But, finally I’m whole again as I’ve found these recipes from Lisa 🙂 Check her out at: http://www.thrive-style.com

    • Hehehe I just confirmed with Hoa that this is you! I didn’t know for sure! You can get it at Organza, or I’ve seen it at Safeway (I’ve only seen it at the one by St. V Mall). It’s sooooo good, they gave other flavors too, but I like plain. Not the squeaky cleanest product-has preservatives, but whatevs lol, better then regular cream cheese!
