Delicious eggnog cookies and pumpkin-nog shake -the perfect holiday treats!
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 was created with Bolthouse Farms seasonal holiday nog. I was super excited to find an eggnog that was low fat and still tasted amazing!
These cookies were super soft and perfectly delicious. My non-loving eggnog friend LOVED these eggnog cookies. Give them a try. You may just be converted. ;)

These are my new favorite holiday cookie. I can’t wait to make them again and again!
Delicious 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 eggnog I used Bolthouse
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons eggnog
- ground nutmeg for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350°F. 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.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use a cookie scoop or drop spoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Do not over cook. Remove cookies from pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
- For icing, whisk powdered sugar and egg nog together. Add more sugar or egg nog, depending on the consistency you prefer.
- Drizzle icing on cooled cookies and sprinkle with nutmeg. Store in a air tight container in the refrigerator.
These go perfectly with a 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.
