Frosted Eggnog Cookies

December 19, 2017 1 Comment

If December were a flavor, would it be eggnog or peppermint? I’m not sure I can decide. Instead of forcing myself to choose the ultimate holiday flavor, I’ve been making treats featuring both of the seasonal favorites. These Frosted Eggnog Cookies are a new addition to my annual baking frenzy and now that they’ve been added, there is no going back. These cookies will be making a regular appearance in my holiday baking for years to come.

I start by whisking together some flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. I set it aside while I mix together my wet ingredients.

In my stand mixer, I combine some butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together until it’s fluffy.

I add in a couple of egg yolks, one at a time.

Then I add in some vanilla extract, rum extract, and of course, some good ol’ fashioned eggnog.

Once all my wet ingredients are mixed together, I add in the bowl of dry ingredients that I whisked together earlier. I add it in a little at a time, allowing it to incorporate into the wet mixture slowly and evenly.

Once the dough has formed, I drop tablespoon sized spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. The cookies bake for about 10-12 minutes in a 350F oven before getting removed to cool.

Once the cookies have cooled completely, I whip up the frosting by creaming together some butter, eggnog, rum extract, and powdered sugar.

Each cookies gets a nice slather of the delicious frosting.

And as a final touch, I dust the cookies with some nutmeg just before serving a platter filled with the tasty treats to my friends and family.

These beautiful cookies are soft and chewy and topped with a frosting that’s filled with warm winter flavors. It’s like wrapping myself up in a warm Christmas blanket.
