Eggnog Cookies


Christmas is just around the corner and to a few in my family that means Eggnog is in the store. I thought it would be fun to make some Eggnog Cookies. These cookies have eggnog in the cookie as well as in the icing. This easy recipe was quick to prepare and make. I like using a small cookie scoop because not only does it make more cookies but I do not have half eaten cookies laying around to finish later. 
Eggnog cookies is an easy recipe with an eggnog icing. They are soft and almost melt in your mouth. These will get you in the holiday mood.

Just a few hints:

  • Make sure you use butter, not margarine.
  • Dough can be made 2 days advance.
  • I like to chill the dough as I am waiting for the oven. It makes the dough less sticky and the cookies not as flat.
  • Pull the cookies out of the oven at the first signs of darkening at the edges.
  • Use parchment paper to line your cookie sheets for a fast clean up.
