There is nothing better to usher in the Holiday season than a good batch of Spice Cookies! My kiddos and I think that they are truly Christmas on a plate for sure…
There is just something special about a soft chewy cookie that is packed full of the spices of the season… Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, molasses & a new addition cardamom, YUM!
This is a cookie that truly stands the test of time. People have been making spice cookies for hundreds of years and it’s a fun tradition at our house. This year I decided to add a little flair with a Holiday Nog Glaze…
Yep, you got it… It adds a whole lotta love to those scrumptious cookies. I chose Silk Holiday Nog over traditional Egg Nog for a few reasons…
First, I LOVE IT!! Seriously, have you tried this stuff? It’s all of the flavors of the season without all the guilt! I don’t think I will ever drink traditional Egg Nog ever again.
Second, It’s a great dairy-free alternative for our dairy-sensitive friends! Plus, here are the other goodies about Silk Holiday Nog…
Absolutely no cholesterol or saturated fat

Yea… it’s a NOG that I can truly get behind.

Silk Cookies with Holiday Nog Glaze Recipe
Preheat oven to 350˚
3 sticks of butter (1 1/2 cups) softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup molasses
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup of course sugar
1/4 cup Silk Holiday Nog
3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream butter & sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, egg yolk and molasses.
In a large bowl, combine your spices and dry ingredients; flour, salt, baking soda and all of the spices…
Aren’t they pretty?!
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the creamed sugar mixture until fully incorporated.
Place dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove the dough and scoop the dough into 2 inch balls with a cookie scoop. Roll the cookie balls in a bowl with the course sugar. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and place in a 350˚ oven for 13-14 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Mix Holiday Nog glaze while cookies are cooling. Add the powdered sugar to a small bowl, add salt and Silk Holiday Nog and whisk until it turns into a thick glaze.
Once the cookies are cool, dip the top part of the cookie into the glaze. Be careful to not fully submerge.
You only want to lightly kiss the top of the cookie with the glaze. Place on a cooling rack and wait for the glaze to set.
Once the glaze is set, serve your cookies with a nice glass of Silk Holiday Nog!
They taste great dunked into the nog as well… just sayin’
Hannah and I thoroughly enjoyed them…
The also make perfect Holiday neighbor gifts! Bag up a few of these bad boys and share with your family and friends. I would even pair it with a carton of silk, they’ll thank you for it!
