How to Store Eggnog Cookies

After baking your Eggnog Cookies, give them at least an hour to cool down before storing them. Of course, you may want to eat a few of them while they are still warm. After the cookies have had time to cool down, begin lining them up in an airtight container. You should use a large container for you to fit at least a dozen cookies on the bottom before layering more cookies on top.

Always separate layered cookies with a sheet of parchment paper. When kept in an airtight container, the Eggnog Cookies should stay fresh for up to five days. If you want to save them for a later time, you should place the cookies in the freezer where they can stay fresh for up to two months.

Eggnog Sugar Cookie Ingredients

Makes 24 cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup eggnog
1 teaspoon rum extract
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
24 Maraschino cherries

For the optional drizzle:

1 cup powdered icing sugar
1/4 cup eggnog, as needed
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Rum extract, optional

How to Make Eggnog Sugar Cookies

Preheat oven to 350F.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and whipped, about 2 minutes. Add the eggnog and rum extract and beat until combined.

In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. Slowly beat the dry ingredients in the butter mixture until fully incorporated.

Use a cookie scoop to portion out the cookie dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Press a maraschino cherry into the center of each cookie dough ball.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, until just lightly golden brown on the edges.

Allow the cookies to cool completely before adding the optional drizzle.

To make the drizzle, combine the powdered icing sugar, nutmeg and 2 Tablespoons of eggnog. Add the rum extract, if using. Beat until fully combined, adding more eggnog as needed to achieve a thick yet runny consistency.

Scoop the drizzle mixture into a piping bag and make a small snip at the end. Drizzle over the cookies. Allow the drizzle to set before eating or storing.
