I promised a while back that I’d start sharing some cookie recipes for the holiday baking.

This is one of my favorites.

I made them several years back for a cookie swap party and they have been a permanent part of my holiday baking plan since then.

I’m thinking I’ll make them again this year, but try to make them with Splenda instead of sugar.

If you like eggnog, give them a try. I think you will love them.

Eggnog Cookies


2 1/4 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 1/4 cups Sugar
3/4 cups Butter ; softened
1/2 cup Eggnog
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 large Eggs



Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
In a second large bowl, cream the sugar & butter.
Add eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks and beat at medium speed until smooth.
Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until well blended.
Do not over mix.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. (1 inch apart)
Sprinkle lightly with additional nutmeg.
Bake 20-25 minutes until bottom turn light brown. Transfer from pans immediately to cool.
