Ingredients

For the sugar coating:

  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground nutmeg

For the cookies:

  • 1 Cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Teaspoons wine, such as Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Harvest Spiced Red Blend
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

Directions

For the sugar coating:

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. 

For the cookies:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed for at least one minute, or until light and fluffy. Add in the egg, Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Harvest Spiced Red Blend and vanilla extract. Continue to beat together until fully incorporated.

In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt.

With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Be sure to fully incorporate all dry ingredients into the wet ingredients before continuing to add dry ingredients.

Roll 2 tablespoons of the mixture into a ball, then roll each ball in the sugar coating mixture. Place coated dough balls onto the lined baking sheets and bake for 10-13 minutes

Remove cookies from the oven when they are lightly golden around their edges. Immediately upon removing, lightly press down on each cookie with the back of a spatula to flatten. Allow cookies to cool on the sheet for several minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for up to five days.

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
