Eggnog Cookies

This is my husband’s favorite time of year because eggnog is finally back on the shelves. I didn’t know this, but my son-in-law also loves eggnog. So when I asked the family for cookie recommendations, my son-in-law responded with, “Can you create an eggnog cookie?” Challenge accepted!

You will love these soft cookies. Perfectly spiced and absolutely delicious when dipped in hot cocoa. Enjoy!


Eggnog Cookies

Soft, delicious cookies that taste just like a glass of eggnog. 

  • Author: admin



3/4 cup butter, softened

½ cup sugar

3 egg yolks

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ cup eggnog

2 ¼ cup flour

2 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

pinch of allspice

½ teaspoon nutmeg

½ teaspoon cinnamon

Eggnog Frosting:

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon butter softened

2 tablespoons eggnog

2 tablespoon rum or ½ teaspoon rum extract



Preheat oven to 350*. In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg yolks and beat until

light and fluffy. Pour in vanilla and eggnog and beat again, until well combined. In a separate bowl, sift

the flour, baking powder, salt, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon together. Pour into the butter mixture

and mix on low speed until just combined. Roll 2 tablespoons of dough into balls, and place on a

parchment lined baking sheet. Using the bottom of a glass, flatten the dough slightly. (You may have to

dip the bottom of the glass in sugar so it doesn’t stick to the cookie dough). Bake for 11 – 13 minutes.

Remove and cool slightly before frosting.



Put all ingredients into a glass bowl, and mix well with a spoon. Frost cookies after they have cooled completely.
