Eggnog Cookies

Looking for a last minute holiday recipe for tonight or tomorrow? Well, you've come to the right place :)

I was looking for a festive recipe to bring over to my neighbor's to wrap presents this past weekend and of course Pinterest brought me to this yummy recipe for soft eggnog cookies. Thankfully, I already had all the ingredients so I was good to go.


1 and 1/4 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of butter (1 and 1/2 sticks)
1/2 cup of light eggnog
1 tsp. of vanilla
2 egg yolks
2 and 1/4 cups of flour
1 tsp. of baking powder
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
1/2 tsp. of nutmeg


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit

Cream the butter and the sugar. Then add the eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks and combine until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Once combined, put in the fridge for a few minutes to cool the dough.

Then scoop dough onto cookie sheet and place into the oven and bake at 300 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until the bottoms are brown.

I didn't frost them as they were sweet enough, but if you'd like to frost them use 1/4 cup of butter (1/2 a stick), 1/2 cup of light eggnog, and some powdered sugar. Beat the butter and powdered sugar, then add eggnog and continue to mix. Then frost the cookies and allow the frosting to harden.
