Triple the icing recipe if you prefer to cover the whole cookie with icing.
In Anna's mulled apple cider cookie recipe, she uses apple cider that hasn't had mulling spices added to it and uses the mulling spices in the cookie batter. For my mulled wine cookies, I added mulled wine to the batter plus additional spices. If you don't want to take the time to make mulled wine first, you could use a non-mulled red wine in this cookie instead. But, it's the holidays, and I highly suggest making some mulled wine. You'll use just a little bit of it in the cookies and you can drink the rest! Cheers!
