What Were Eating

Total Time: 17 minutes


For the Coquito Frosting:


  1. Bake sugar cookies according to package, then let cool for 30 minutes before frosting.

  2. While the cookies are baking, make the frosting.

  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Add coconut cream then beat until incorporated. Add sweetened condensed milk and rum then beat until incorporated. Add remaining ingredients and continue beating until completely smooth and incorporated.

  4. Once the cookies have cooled, frost the top of each cookie with about 1 1/2 tbsp of the Coquito frosting. Grate fresh nutmeg over the tops of each frosted cookie. Store in a single layer in an air-tight container, chilled for up to about 5 or 6 days.
