Eggnog Cookies

I am participating in a cookie exchange this Thursday and I decided because of my love for eggnog I was going to make eggnog cookies! You have to understand, I bake once in a blue moon so I wanted an easy to follow recipe that wouldn’t take me hours to make!  I started searching and found this recipe on Jen’s Favorite Cookies Website and it turned out amazing so I had to share!! They only take, in my oven 13min to cook and the icing was a breeze, recipe below!! Scrumptious!!!

Hope you enjoy! xo

Eggnog Cookies


  • 3/4 cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup store bought eggnog
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3 cups flour


  • 6T store bought eggnog
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp nutmeg


  1. Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, eggnog and vanilla. Mix well.
  2. Add salt, soda, and nutmeg, mix well. Add flour and mix until combined. It should form a very soft dough
  3. Drop spoonfuls onto a lined baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 12-15 min (13 worked perfect for me in my oven!) until lightly brown. Let cool before frosting.
  4. For frosting, combine all ingredients, mixing until smooth. Frost cooled cookies and store between layers of wax paper or parchment paper.


These cookies are cake and the dough is quite soft. I would recommend using lots of pam or wax paper to avoid sticking!
