Delicious eggnog cookies and pumpkin-nog shake


Today I have two delicious holiday eggnog recipes to share with you! If you are an eggnog lover, you are going to adore these 2 recipes. I am a total eggnog fan. I still remember drinking “frozen eggnog” at my grammas every year during Christmas. Me and my older brother were always sneaking more. My grammas stash never ran low. Only at grammas house! ;)

Today’s recipe’s were created with Bolthouse Farms seasonal holiday nog. I was super excited to find an eggnog that was low fat and still tasted amazing! After all the calories I took in over Thanksgiving I wanted something a little lighter. Their holiday nog also has 80% less fat so you can indulge in a classic eggnog drink and feel good about it.


First up … my skinny pumpkin-nog shake! I threw in all of my favorite things to create this yummy shake. Bonus- it only has about 120 calories per serving. It’s the perfect indulgence this holiday season. I also dressed up the cups with graham cracker crumbs. Simply dip the top of your cup in eggnog and then the graham cracker crumbs for a fun touch.

Eggnog cookies


  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, slightly softened
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Bolthouse holiday eggnog
  • Eggnog icing
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons eggnog
  • ground nutmeg (for garnish)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg yolks and vanilla to the mixture and beat until smooth. Finally, add egg nog and mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Slowly add flour mixture into the eggnog mixture and stir until combined. Chill dough for 20 minutes.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use a cookie scoop or drop spoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Do not over cook. Remove cookies from pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  3. For icing, whisk powdered sugar and egg nog together. Add more sugar or egg nog, depending on the consistency you prefer.
  4. Drizzle icing on cooled cookies and sprinkle with nutmeg. Store in a air tight container in the refrigerator.

  1. This all looks so good Jamielyn! My family loooves eggnog. I have a hard time with just straight eggnog but love it in baking/cooking. We need to try these- thanks!

  2. Pinned to my cookie board and my drinks board – b/c both recipes look amazing!

  3. Where do you find the Bolthouse farms eggnog? I see Kirkland vanilla in your picture…Costco? Thanks!

  4. WOW – these look delish! Thanks for the recipe. :)

  5. Another ” NOG” lover! No Eggnog will go to waist this year.

    Super yummy. Thanks Jamielyn!!

  7. #nomnom totally making these cookies tomorrow! xo

  8. Confession: I’ve never tried Egg nog!! GASP!! I know. This pumpkin nog looks right up my alley though. xoxo

  9. Mmmm! Those look so good, I will have to make them sometime!!

  10. These look delish! I am adding them to my baking arsenal this year. Could you please tell me how many cookies the egg nog recipe yields?

  11. Can you freeze these eggnog cookies? If so, can I freeze them with the icing or should I ice after defrosting?

  12. I made these tonight for Christmas and was so excited! After baking for only 9 minutes though the bottoms were black and the top still mostly raw. I followed the recipe to the T, chilled the dough for an hour and during the 2nd batch chilled the trays and lowered the oven temp. I don’t know how they could have gone wrong but any advice you have will be greatly appreciated-I’m so disappointed!

    • That is so strange Adrianna! I did not have that issue at all, so I’m very sorry they didn’t turn out for you. Every oven temperature and altitude varies so I’m not sure what could have gone wrong!

  13. My kids LOVE all things egg nog. I will definitely be making them these cookies this year. Thank you so much for the recipe. Pinning it!

  14. Well I made my first batch and loved them…baked them a tad too long as I was so afraid that they would be under baked.. Love the eggnog icing especially after you drizzle the cookies and store in the fridge. Just wondering, why we need to chill the dough as I have never had to do that with drop cookies?? Looking forward to making these cookies again. Thanks for sharing. :)

  15. We LOVE your pumpkin snickerdoodle recipe so much (and snickerdoodles in general) i wonder what your thoughts are on adapting that recipe for eggnog?  I was thinking of starting with  1/4 cup eggnog (instead of the 3/4 cup pumpkin) then adjust after seeing consistency and using only the cinnamon and nutmeg for spices.  Maybe i would be better off adjusting this recipe by just adding white chocolate chips and maybe some cream of tartar…i am no baking expert so i would love to know what you think of this! 
    Thanks!  I hope you are enjoying this holiday season!

    Just made these and the bottom of the cookies got too dark (to not say burnt!) way too fast. :( They still taste good though I’d like more eggnog flavor.

  17. Approximately how many cookies does this recipe make?
