If you followed me for a while, you may have noticed I am a little obsessed with eggnog. Especially in baked goods. (Check out my Eggnog Bread … so yummy!!)
Every holiday season I drink ALL the eggnog. Fireball Eggnog is my new favorite!
So when I needed to come up with a new holiday-themed cookie this year, I decided to go with something I love!
I hope you like these Soft and Chew Eggnog Cookies as much as I do!
Soft and Chewy Eggnog Cookies
- 4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (use from 1 to 2 teaspoons)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon

- 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar light or dark

- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or rum extract)
- 1 1/4 cup Eggnog
- 4 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars until slightly lighter in color and "fluffy".
- Add the eggs and vanilla/rum extract. Mix well.
- In a smaller bowl, sift together: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- Slowly mix in the dry ingredients alternating with the eggnog until combined, but don't overmix.
