The holidays are right around the corner and we will be starting our holiday traditions before you know it. Each year we have a list of holiday traditions that we do that our family loves and I cherish and the best is baking! These eggnog cookies will quickly become one of your holiday traditions too.
Family traditions are so important. Each year our children get a holiday ornament to place on the tree. When they get married or move out, these ornaments will be boxed up and given to them to start their own Christmas tree decorations with their family.
Another thing we do each year is make Christmas Cookies for cookie trays to gift to family and friends. There is nothing better than a homemade cookie tray to show people how much you love them. This eggnog cookie recipe is a new one for us but has quickly become a favorite. It has just the right amount of nutmeg spice.
For the cookies-
1-1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup confectioners sugar
1 tsp salt
½ tsp nutmeg
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups confectioners sugar
4-6 TBSP ready-made eggnog
1 TBSP vanilla extract
In a large bowl fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the remaining ingredients until just combined.
Form the dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350.
Roll out the dough to ¼” thickness. Use a cookie cutter and place on cookie sheets with silicon mats about 2-inches apart.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Cool completely before icing.
To make the icing, combine al the ingredients together and mix with a spoon.
Top with sanding sugar if you desire.
Let set until icing hardens.
Traditions are so important to me. Our traditions don’t just circle around the holidays but vacations as well. We love to cruise as a family because there is always something for everyone. Holland America cruise lines have amazing food prepared by Holland America Line Culinary Council®.
