Makes 10 pies

What You Need:

For the Soy Nog Whoopie Pies:

  • 1 cup soy nog
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegan margarine
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons vegan yogurt

For the Cinnamon-Chocolate Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegan margarine
  • 1 cup vegan shortening
  • 1/2 cup vegan cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

For the Chocolate Drizzle:

  • 1/4 cup soymilk
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips

What You Do:

  1. For the whoopie pies, in a small bowl, whisk together soy nog and vinegar until nog curdles. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together margarine and sugar until smooth. Add vanilla to curdled soynog and stir. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir. Add vegan yogurt and mix until smooth.
  3. Onto baking sheets, place two-inch scoopfuls of dough, with ample space in between each scoop. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool completely on wire racks before filling.
  4. For the filling, in a large bowl, beat powdered sugar, margarine, shortening, and cream cheese together until fluffy. Add cinnamon and cocoa powder. Using a large spoon or a pastry bag, drop a generous amount of frosting onto one cookie and press another cookie gently on top. Repeat with all cookies.
  5. For the chocolate drizzle, in a saucepan over medium heat, heat soymilk until boiling. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, add agave and chocolate chips and whisk until smooth and shiny. Using a pastry bag or spoon, drizzle on top of assembled cookies.
