Christmas Cookies

Total Time: 15 to 25 minutes

Servings: Approximately 2 dozen cookies

If you love eggnog (and even if you don't), the delightful aroma and flavor of cinnamon and nutmeg make these perfect holiday treats.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup eggnog


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix butter and sugar until creamy, then add egg, vanilla and eggnog; mix well. When liquid mixture is combined, add the flour mixture and stir until well blended.
  3. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Or roll dough into balls and slightly press on to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake approximately 8-12minutes (depending on thickness) or until golden brown on the edges.
