BEST Eggnog Cookies!

I got a request to make eggnog cookies and I thought that was genius! Especially because my brother is obsessed with eggnog 🙂 These came out way better than I anticipated! Crispy outside with a soft inside and the frosting helps it all just melt. in. your. mouth!

2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup eggnog

For the Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup + 1 tbls eggnog

Step 1: Combine dry ingredients, the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside.

Step 2: Beat the butter. Add in the sugar and brown sugar. Next add the yolks, vanilla and eggnog! Gradually, beat in the dry ingredients.

Step 3: Place dough on a cookie sheet, greased, parchment, or with silicone baking mats, at 350º for 12 minutes. They will only be golden brown on the bottom, not the top so don’t wait for the tops to turn brown!!

Step 4: Place on a cooling rack and wait until they have completely cooled to frost them. While you wait, make the frosting! Beat the butter. Add the powdered sugar. And finally the vanilla and eggnog. Frost the cookies and sprinkle some nutmeg or cinnamon on each one for added color.

Tada! These are so simple and really worth it! Can’t wait to have them at our Christmas party tomorrow!

Happy holidays!!

  1. We may have to have a showdown on this one.  I’ve been making my Nutmeg logs for years and have been told that they are the best.  Are you ready for a bake off?! Marj
