Eggnog cookies are the perfect holiday treat! They are delicious and special since we don’t make them year round.  



2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder 

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

3/4 cups white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup salted butter, softened

 1/2 cup eggnog

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1 tablespoon nutmeg

1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar


Preheat oven to 300°.

Whisk together the  flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl.  Set aside.

In an electric mixer, cream the sugars and butter.  Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks.  Beat on medium speed until smooth. 

Add the flour mixture and blend just until combined; don’t overmix

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheet. I use parchment paper but it’s not necessary.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until bottom is light brown and the cookie has a little spring to it when you lightly touch the center.  You can start checking at 20 minutes if you like a very soft cookie.

Transfer to cooling rack with either a towel or wax/parchment paper underneath. Mix the confectioner’s sugar and nutmeg and lightly sprinkle the mixture with a fine mesh sieve over the cookies.
