a crafty vegan's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 3

Cookies and Icing

We had a holiday party a week ago, where we met with our close group of friends for our monthly pizza dinner night. Since we wanted to make it festive, i also made some Vegan Sugar Cookies. Now, there are oodles of recipes on-line and in your various cookbooks, but i really wanted ones this year that were crisp, and the icing was able to harden - not always the case with me. Here is one such recipe for cookies, and i customized the various simple icing recipes to make my very own. Here it is:

Egg Nog Icing
  • 4 tablespoons vegan margarine
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 2 tbsp of vegan eggnog, or enough to combine
1. Beat ingredients until fluffy. If too runny, add more sugar, and if too dry, add more eggnog.
2. Spread on cookies, once cookies are nice and cooled. As icing is starting to harden, add sprinkles of your choice. I also stacked smaller cookies on top of bigger ones, for added flair!
3. Enjoy

Vania, where did you get your cookie cutters from? Can you suggest any places in the city where I can pick up some cookie cutters? btw, those sugar cookies look so good :)
