Eggnog Cookies

These yummy treats are a cakey kind of cookie.


2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups granulated white sugar
3/4 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup eggnog
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks


1. Preheat oven to 300°F.

2. In a small bowl, combine all the dry ingredients together. In a large bowl, cream together sugar and butter. Add remaining ingredients and beat at medium speed until smooth. Add dry ingredients and beat at low speed just until blended.

3. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet, 1 inch apart. Sprinkle lightly with additional nutmeg.

4. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until bottoms turn light brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

    Loved this cookie, used splenda to try and save on a few calories, turned out fabulous! Great flavor and even my non-eggnog fans came back for seconds! Great!

    Love this recipe – have changed a few things.

    First, I refrigerate for an hour. Then I roll into balls and smush in my hands before putting on the cookie sheet. Then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Finally, sprinkle with nutmeg.

    If I rolled the dough, refrigerated for an hr and used Xmas cookie cutouts before I bake, would the end result be the same??

      No- these are not cutout cookies.

    I made these using Pumpkin Spice Eggnog Milk from Shatto Milk. They are so good!
