Eggnog Cookies


  • 1 cup Organic Valley Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1-12 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Organic Valley Large Eggs
  • 1 cup Organic Valley Eggnog
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum, such as Gosling's or Meyer's (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-14 teaspoon baking powder
  • 12 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • Dash nutmeg
  • See recipe ingredients below for optional icing



1. In large bowl of electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add eggnog, rum and vanilla.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Add to butter mixture, beating just until combined. Chill dough 30 minutes for easier handling.

3. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

4. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Using floured cookie cutters or a round biscuit cutter, cut into desired shapes.

5. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets, and bake 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Transfer to wire cooling racks; cool completely.

6. When cool, ice cookies with Eggnog Icing (see recipe below) and sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg, if desired. 


2-1/2 cups powdered sugar

4 tablespoons Organic Valley Unsalted Butter, softened

3 tablespoons Organic Valley Eggnog

Grated nutmeg (optional)

1. Combine powdered sugar and butter in a small bowl, blending with a fork.

2. Add eggnog; blend well. If icing is stiff, add additional eggnog 1 teaspoon at a time until a creamy frosting is achieved.

3. Spread on cooled Eggnog Cookies or other seasonal dessert. Sprinkle with nutmeg, if desired.

Do not make these cookies! The batter is so sticky, they're impossible to work with. I allowed them to chill for about an hour versus 30 minutes to make sure they would be workable. I had to use TONS of flour and it was impossible to use a cookie cutter. I ended up making small balls in my hands. I'll never make these again. Total waste of time.

Dough was a bit sticky, but works fine with a dusting of flour to cut out the cookies. Definitely a keeper for the holidays.

Love these!! Just about to make my second batch. I made a half batch and refrigerated for longer than 30mins and was able to handle the dough just fine. Made cute christmas tree cut outs.

The taste is good but the dough is almost impossible to work with. I agree with Mary that it was very wet. Mine never really solidified enough to be able to roll it. It stuck to everything like glue. I ended up using a cookie scoop to make balls and wet fingers to smoosh them down to about inch thickness. They also stuck to the parchment losing the nicely browned bottoms. It's not a keeper for me.

I baked these cookies and I won't make them again. I'm famouse among my circle for my baking and these flopped for me. The dough is away too sticky for them to be cut-out cookies. It took much longer than 10min to bake (closer to 15!). Haven't tried them yet but I'm pretty disappointed so far. If you try these, don't cut them out. Take a knife and cut them into squares. And yes, I chilled the dough for at least 30min.

This is a delicious recipe. The dough us very wet after combining all the ingredients but solidified when refrigerated. I just added this recipe to my list of Christmas cookies.

@ Susan: I am not a gluten free person, but have a friend who does, and she just subs out the regular flour with a mixture of almond and coconut flours. Hope that's helpful.
