I have been a freelance writer for more than 4 years, a mom for more than 2 years, and a wife for just under a year. I am currently a student in a cooking and catering program with the intention of expanding my knowledge of the culinary business. I then plan to take this knowledge to properly write about and critique restaurants and food. Writing to you from Niagara Falls, NY, thanks for joining me on the ride!

Frosted Eggnog Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tsp egg replacer powder mixed with 1/4 cup water (or 2 eggs, for non-vegan)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk eggnog (Silk soy nog works too, or just regular eggnog)
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 3-5 tbsp eggnog
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  1. You know the drill- preheat the oven to 350ºF (175ºC) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugars with a fork until fluffy. Whisk in the egg replacer, vanilla and eggnog. Sift in the flour, baking powder, and spices and mix until combined. Scoop out the cookie dough by the tablespoon and roll into balls before flattening onto the baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  3. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the frosting by combining the ingredients in a food processor. Start with 3 tbsp of eggnog and add more as needed until the frosting is thick and creamy. Once the cookies are completely cool, frost generously and top with a sprinkle of nutmeg.
