If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have noticed yesterday I FINALLY got in the kitchen to bake cookies! 9 hours later, and 5 kinds of cookies I felt like a weight was lifted! It just doesn’t feel like the holiday’s until I’ve churned out several batches of cookies.
Each year I like to try at least one new cookie, and this time is was the year of Eggnog!
I’ve never been a fan of eggnog, mainly because I’m not a milk drinker. But I do love eggnog flavored treats, so I knew if I went searching I could come up with an eggnog cookie. Cookie Madness has a recipe from Mrs. Fields that I though sounded ah-mazing, and I liked her buttercream eggnog frosting better than the glaze frosting Mrs. Fields recipe suggested (which I’m sure is delicious as well!)
I’ve always heard that eggnog is best with a little rum, so I slightly
spiked modified the cookie and the frosting just a little, but you could certainly leave it out!
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Deliciously soft spice cookie infused with eggnog.
Slightly adapted from Mrs. Fields.
Variations: You could leave out the rum if you’d like.
Spiked Eggnog Buttercream
Recipe slightly adapted from Cookie Madness
Variations: This recipe made a lot more than what was needed for one batch of eggnog cookies. You could probably get by with half this recipe.

Even if you’re not a fan of eggnog, I think you’ll enjoy these cookie. They reminded us of snickerdoodles!
Do you like eggnog? I’d love to hear more eggnog infused recipes!
