Love Eggnog??? Creamy rich eggnog without which it is not Christmas for sure. And what if I tell you that you can not only drink eggnog, you can eat it too. These Eggnog cookies are soft, chewy and are filled with warm winter spices. The eggnog sugar glaze drizzled on top makes it even more irresistible. These cookies are perfect to ring in the holiday season or for Christmas Cookie Swap.
The cookie dough has eggnog added to it and then there is eggnog in the sugar glaze too. So with each bite of these eggnog cookies, it would feel like you are taking a sip of eggnog. Isn’t that amazing??
I really love the cake-like texture of these eggnog cookies. The edges are slightly crispy. The aroma from nutmeg, cinnamon would fill your house while baking them. These cookies get a rich taste from the eggnog. So make sure you use a good quality full-fat eggnog.
The dough is so good that you can just have a spoonful of it out of the bowl. So you hold on to your temptation.
The dough is not as thick as chocolate chip cookies doughs. So it needs to be chilled at least for 30 minutes before baking. It prevents the cookies from spreading too much.
Use a small Ice cream scoop to portion the dough. After you scoop out the dough you can let it chill on the cookies tray. Then later freeze them in a ziplock bag.
These cookies not only have eggnogs in it, but they are also glazed with Eggnog sugar glaze. Making eggnog sugar glaze is super easy and quick. All you have to do mix icing sugar and eggnog until the desired consistency is reached. THough it is so simple to make, it adds a lot of flavour and texture to it. Then sprinkle more cinnamon or nutmeg on top.
