I really like eggnog. Rich, creamy, and non-alcoholic for me! I drink mine with unsweetened almond milk and a little pinch of nutmeg!
As you can tell by the picture at the bottom of this post, we had some eggnog at one point during the last week! It was stored on the inside door of our fridge, and every time I opened the door, it stared at me. I mean really- it stared at me! And I caved. I couldn’t take the pressure! The carton came out and the eggnog went into making cookies! Now all that’s left is an empty eggnog carton and some cookie crumbs!!
Makes 24 cookies
1 standard-sized French Vanilla cake mix
1/2 cup eggnog
2 teaspoons vanilla extract or rum extract
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons eggnog
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper- set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix half of the dry cake mix with the eggnog, eggs, vanilla or rum extract, and spices. Stir until well combined. Slowly stir in the remaining cake mix.
Using a large-sized ice cream scoop, scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, move cookies onto cooling racks and cool completely.
For the glaze- in a small mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons eggnog. Add more eggnog to reach the consistency you prefer. Spread, or drizzle, onto cooled cookies. Set cookies aside to let the glaze harden. Enjoy!
Do you like your eggnog with, or without alcohol?
