Eggnog Cookies


Another classic Christmas flavor is eggnog.  I have made eggnog muffins, eggnog pancakes, eggnog french toasteggnog syrup, and even eggnog hot cocoa before. So why not make eggnog cookies?  I must admit, I am not a fan of eggnog on it’s own.  I can tolerate if it is thinned down with some Sprite.  It is just too thick and creamy for me to drink.  However, add eggnog to a recipe where I can get the flavor and I am totally on board.

These cookies showcase the flavor of eggnog very well.  There is eggnog in the cookie itself in addition to the glaze.  The flavor is just enough and not too over powering.  I think anyone would love these cookies, even if they don’t like eggnog.

Eggnog Cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup eggnog
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2¼ cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Glaze:
  • 1½ cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 Tbsp eggnog
  • additional cinnamon, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees (this is not a typo - 300 is the correct temp for these cookies)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar and butter together with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  3. Add in the eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks. Beat with mixer until smooth.
  4. Then add the nutmeg, flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix in just until combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. You want to make these cookies on the smaller size because the dough does spread. I made mine around 1½ Tbsp.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes until edges just start to brown.
  7. Remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool.
  8. Mix together the powdered sugar and eggnog to create the glaze.
  9. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies and sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired. Makes 3 dozen cookies.

  • Baking powder is in the list of ingredients, but step 4 of the instructions says baking soda. Would you please verify which one is supposed to be used? Thanks!

  • I made them, I LOVED THEM!!! My husband, my friends who don’t like eggnog, my kids……. everyone loved them.

    Thanks for the recipe!

  • Totally ‘pinning’ these to try this season!

  • I always hated eggnog until I found Julia Child’s recipe. It is so wonderful, even children love it. I remember a party I had, and the guests made me go to the store for more ingredients. I’ve since misplaced the recipe, but I do seat-of-the-pants management and it turns out real close. You might try a home-made recipe, if you aren’t already.
