Egg Nog Cookies

Now, I personally don't like egg nog, but my mom, brother, and husband love it, so when I ran across this recipe, I knew I had to try it for the holiday season. Just got done baking and frosting them last night. Keep reading to see how they turned out!


  • 1 cup butter/margarine, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 5 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter/margarine, softened
  • 1/3 cup eggnog
Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggnog, baking soda, and nutmeg; mix well. Gradually add flour, mixing well. Chill overnight. Roll out to 1/2" thick. Bake at 375°F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.

Frosting: Beat powdered sugar and butter until well blended. Gradually beat in eggnog until icing is smooth. Spread on cooled cookies. 

My Take
As mentioned before, I myself do not like eggnog, but I love these cookies! My mom and Dylan both said they taste like eggnog, so I guess that's good.

The cookies with the glaze (dozes and teddy bears)
The only thing I changed about this recipe, was that I didn't really feel like frosting the cookies, so I tried to make a glaze out of it. Putting butter in the frosting didn't help, so my mom and I made a glaze with powdered sugar, eggnog, and some milk. Couldn't tell you the exact proportions, and that seemed to work out well. Takes a lot less time than frosting the many cookies we had! These turned out *a lot* better than the candy cane cookies which I'll post about later (either later today or tomorrow).

So, those are the Egg Nog Cookies. Lemme know what you think and how yours turned out!
