These cookies are very cakey and taste strongly of eggnog 🙂 They’re great and festive for the holidays!

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup eggnog (store-bought)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp nutmeg
  • 3 cups flour

Frosting:

  • 6 tbs prepared eggnog
  • 2½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg

Directions:

  • Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, eggnog, and vanilla, and mix well.
  • Add salt, soda, and nutmeg and mix well. Add flour and mix until combined. It should form a very soft dough.
  • Drop spoonfuls onto a lined baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, until lightly brown. Let cool before frosting.
  • For frosting, combine all ingredients, mixing until smooth. Frost cooled cookies, and store between layers of wax paper or parchment paper.
