Vegan Snickerdoodle Nog Cookie Sticks

Today we’re putting creamy nog in cookies.

Almondmilk & Cookie Pairings for Santa:  Califia Farms Holiday Nog + Snickerdoodle Nog Cookie Sticks.  #glutenfree #vegan

I’ve decided to take Christmas cookies seriously this year.  If one can do such a thing.

This week I’ll be sharing not one, not two, but THREE Almondmilk & Cookie Pairings for Santa, all featuring Califia Farms Almondmilk.  Then on Friday I’ll be throwing us an Almondmilk & Cookies Holiday Party.

For this holiday party…Santa has gone vegan.  Probably because he too loves cookie dough and knows that making vegan cookies means the cookie dough is all the more socially acceptable to eat.  So here we go with some vegan milk & cookie pairings.

First up, Snickerdoodle Nog Cookie Sticks paired with Califia Farms Holiday Nog.

Now we all know I’m an ooey, gooey cookie person.  You know me and my feelings, so it’s probably a waste of time to tell you (again) that life is too short for crunchy cookies.  While the name cookie ‘sticks’ implies crunchy cookies, I assure you that ‘stick’ just means they’re highly dip-able.  The cookies are still soft and holiday-flavor filled.  I promise you.

What are your feelings on egg nog? It took me years to work up the courage to try it one Christmas.  When I finally did I wanted to know why no one told me sooner that it tasted like melted ice cream!

Califia’s Holiday Nog is a vegan twist on traditional egg nog.  No dairy or soy, yet it’s still all the bit as creamy as your traditional nog.  Plus, it comes in a gorgeous bottle that totally makes your fridge look more classy.  And if your fridge looks like my fridge (i.e. a plethora of foil covered things), a little class couldn’t hurt.

Now let’s have a discussion about cookie sticks.  They’re not round cookies with gooey centers, but you can dip them into your Holiday Nog and the whole experience is quite holiday. 

First you make two giant cookies on a baking sheet, which goes against everything your mom taught you about cookie making because the middle won’t bake and blah-de-blah, but they come out fine.  Then bake and when you slice them up the insides are soft and the outsides are crisp and it’s the way a cookie was meant to be…even if they don’t look like your typical cookie.  Don’t judge a cookie by it’s cover.

I mean, nog with a cinnamon-sugar coated cookie…it’s practically out of a fairy tale.  Find yourself a warm, cozy fire and drink up.

Now just to say again, these aren’t biscotti-like AT ALL.  I know they look biscotti-ish, but biscotti are crunchy to the max.   These are soft cookies that are what biscotti wish they were.  Or at least, what I wish all biscotti were.  Are all you biscotti lovers cringing?  Sorry.  I love you, I’m just questioning your cookie choices.  Jay kay.     

I’ll see you tomorrow with another Califia Farms Almondmilk & Cookie Pairing.

  1. Hi Kylie …just baked these! Used a combination of almond milk & coconut milk 1/4 C. Total Instead of egg nog ….because that is what I had in my house ….at first I didn’t know when cookies were done, so left them in oven an extra 5 minutes..took them out, sprinkled with cinnamon/sugar mixture & popped back in oven for 3 minutes…..they turned out GREAT, love the texture! So light and delicious! I would make these again ….you forgot to mention adding flax/water mixture but I figured it out. Very yummy! Thanks! Happy Holidays and cookie party!

  6. Ooooh, almond milk nog sounds so good, I’ll have to keep an eye out for that. These cookie sticks sound amazing!! So perfect for the holidays!!

  7. We have the same kinds of dreams and goals for our cookies, Kylie. I totally wish biscotti were more like these crispy on the outside, soft on the inside cookie sticks. And snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies!! Making them dippable for eggnog is just another one of the the many reasons I love you.

  11. Omgoshhh one of the BEST things about being done with finals this time around is that I get to catch up on all your posts all at once and there’s so many about COOKIES!!! Totally a soft cookie person too and these look SO SOFT AND DELICIOUS. I’ve also never had nog and I’m kind of scared to start because if it tastes like melted ice cream? It could be my complete undoing. Love this!!!
