Who loves eggnog?! I do! It’s a holiday staple, and I love that you can use it for things other than just drinking. Yes. It’s true. You can even use it for baking!! How awesome is that?! I used it in today’s recipe for Eggnog cookies. The result was a soft and chewy cookie with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar and eggnog.

The Eggnog glaze on top was the perfect addition. It made them just sweet enough but not too rich and makes for another great holiday cookie recipe to try this year.

How to Make Eggnog Cookies

If you’re a fan of eggnog, then you’ll definitely love these cookies. They only require a few simple ingredients and steps.

Begin by creaming together your butter and sugar until fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix well. From there, add eggnog and mix until well combined.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg and cinnamon and mix. Add this mixture to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.

Use a cookie scoop to drop batter onto parchment lined baking sheets and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

Let cool before drizzling on the glaze. Super easy and super tasty!

Christmas Jar Gifts

Christmas Cookie Gift

Well, if you guys know me at all you won’t be surprised to learn that I didn’t stop at just making cookies. I was asked by Horizon Organic to make a simple and fun gift idea this holiday season and decided to use these cookies and a Cookie Jar I found at my local Kroger Store for it.

Who would give a Cookie Jar for a gift without cookies, right?! I made this batch and then filled the jar with them and even decided to make a little poem and turned it into a tag that reminded the recipient of the true reason for this amazing season.

To make this gift is beyond simple! I began by finding a cute jar. From there, I made this printable tag.

  1. Yum – will definitely make these! And love the cookie jar! I know you didn’t get that at the $1 spot at Target!!! But I am going to look for one. Oh, and I have a great recipe for eggnog bread – real fast and easy. One year I made 75 loaves!! ha ha – I was looking for people to give a loaf to!!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. LOVE this recipe but when i made it at home the batter was VERY wet. couldnt roll it at all! is it supposed to be that consistency? or should i add more flour. thanks~

    1. Mine was wet too. I stuck it in the freezer while I baked other cookies and stuck it BAck in while batches are cooking. That seemed to work. IT’S still sticky, but it at least comes out

  3. “1. Begin by creaming together butter and sugar until fluffy”

    What sugar? It’s not on the ingredients list (not for the cookie. It’s there for the glaze, but not the cookie). How has anyone who has made these known how much sugar to use?

    1. I was just in your situation!
      I did equal parts butter to sugar (split 1/2 and 1/2 between white and light brown). They came out awesome 🙂 Hope this helpS! also found that it took a bit longer time to bake than expected. But the final product is delicious.
