What to do with all that Nog?

Here’s a great idea for that extra, unconsumed eggnog. Cookies!

Yes, eggnog can be used to make excellent cookies to be enjoyed over the Holidays. They are really easy to make and it’s a fantastic way not to waste that last bit of liquid delight that lingers in the fridge.


Here’s the recipe for eggnog cookies:

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup softened, salted butter
1/2 cup eggnog
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 300 F.
Use a medium sized bowl to combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well with a wire wisk and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter with an electric mixer forming a grainy paste. Add eggnog, vanilla, egg yolks and beat at medium speed until smooth.
Add flour mixture and beat at low speed just until combined. Do not over mix.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto untreated baking sheets about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Bake for 23 to 25 minutes or until the buttoms turn light brown. Transfer to cool, flat surface immediately with spatula. Enjoy once cooled!

We enjoy these delightful seasonal cookies every year. It has become a Christmas baking tradition in our house. Maybe it will become one in yours?
