Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

Eggnog cookies recipe

Posted on: December 5, 2009

The holidays are here and who isn’t looking for a festive snack to celebrate the occasion?  When my good friends, Brinton and Charlotte Colburn, said these cookies were fantastic and their three kids loved them, I knew I had to share the recipe with Marvelous Girl readers.  Here’s the recipe from


2 1/2 cups flour, all purpose
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup purchased eggnog
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks
2 to 3 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 300°. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Blend well with a whisk and set aside. In a large mixing bowl cream sugar and butter with an electric hand-held mixer. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks; beat at medium speed until smooth. Add the flour mixture and beat at low speed just until dry ingredients are moistened. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to a flat surface with a spatula.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Makes about 3 dozen

If your family isn’t into nutmeg, Charlotte substituted cinnamon on her cookies instead.  Another option is using canned icing.   Whatever you do, make the recipe your own.   Then you’ll have a special treat your family will look forward to every holiday.

Thanks again to the Colburns for this marvelous recipe!!
