Enjoy your favorite rich, spiced holiday drink in cookie form with this roundup of 11 amazingly good eggnog cookie recipes. 

For me, Christmas has a signature taste — and it’s eggnog.

There’s nothing quite like a glass of this rich, spiced drink to get me into the holiday spirit.

Whether served with a kick of brandy, a splash of rum, or as is, it’s always a big part of our celebrations.

So while looking forward to next Christmas and daydreaming about sipping on eggnog (as one sometimes does), I wondered–why limit your eggnog experience to just the holidays?

And even better, why not enjoy it in cookie form?

It’s this thought process that inspired me to bring the taste of eggnog into the kitchen beyond just what’s in our glasses.

After all, all its delectable flavors—cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla—are some of the building blocks of my favorite baked goods.

That’s how I came to scour the net for the best eggnog cookie recipes, and the results were incredible.

From a spicy twist on classic sugar cookies to Frosted Gingerbread Cookies, a whole world of eggnog cookies is waiting to be explored.

So get your eggnog to fix any time of the year with these delicious recipes.

#8 is just a chock-full of aromatic goodness!

We all know that snickerdoodles don’t shy away from spices.

Sure, it’s known for its sugar-cinnamon coating.

But let’s not forget the dough–it gets a hefty boost from nutmeg and even more cinnamon.

And in this recipe, that’s kicked further up a notch by adding eggnog.

This surprising addition gives the cookies a richer flavor and a moist texture that’ll hit all the right spots.

Who doesn’t love a soft and chewy cookie?

Well, this eggnog-infused recipe promises just that.

With just a slight crunch around the edges but pillowy soft in the middle, these cookies are a delight.

And let’s not forget the eggnog icing on top.

These make an already tempting snack become even more irresistible.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who’d say no to these.

You don’t always have to fire up your oven to make your dessert.

In this recipe, you get to relish the flavors of eggnog in its simplest form – no baking required!

With oats as the base, this easy-to-make treat will be ready in no time.

And even better, you can enjoy it in its ooey-gooey goodness.

When in a cookie, white chocolate chips create these amazing sweet pockets of velvety indulgence.

In this recipe, it plays a lead role alongside the nutmeg-spiced eggnog.

The combo is a match made in heaven–creamy, sweet bits of white chocolate with warm flavors of the famed milk punch.

These cookies have a deliciously chewy texture–what more could you ask for?

This recipe calls for cake flour, rum extract, and eggnog, among others.

Now that’s a promising trifecta if you ask me.

The cake flour makes the cookies light and fluffy, while the rum extract adds a hint of warmth.

Trust me when I say these cookies will be moist, spiced to perfection, and frosted with a sweet glaze.

When a recipe features cream cheese, you can be sure that I’ll give it my full attention!

And I’m glad I did with this one because it’s a keeper.

These cookies are finger-licking enough on their own, but the thick, creamy cream cheese icing on top carries it to a new level of deliciousness.

I look forward to making these again and again!

Bite-sized cookies are always a hit.

In this recipe, we get to make these adorable little snowball cookies that have a subtle Yule fuel flavor and plenty of spices.

And if you want to take it up a notch?

Instead of rolling it in powdered sugar, you can dip them into melted white chocolate for extra decadence.

Now, this is a cookie that knows a thing or two about spices.

A bag of chai adds some serious punch to an already flavorful eggnog cookie.

It’s a balancing act of sweet and spicy, unique and delicious.

The frosting seals the deal with its creamy goodness, making this an aromatic, swoon-worthy delight.

Gingerbread cookies and eggnog complement each other.

In this recipe, the combo works like a charm.

The gingerbread cookies get their signature flavor from spices like ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

And the eggnog frosting piles on an extra smack to it.

Spiced but not too overpowering, these cookies will transport you to a magical world of holiday cheer and warmth.

Shortbread cookies are known for their buttery flavor and crumbly texture.

And I adore them even more when they’re flavored with eggnog.

There are not a lot of bells and whistles in this recipe–just a simple, classic cookie made more special with nutmeg and cinnamon.

Serve it with a cup of hot tea or cocoa, and you have yourself one cozy night in.

The words “gooey” and “buttery” are music to my ears.

And that’s exactly what these cookies offer–a lusciously soft texture that will have you licking your fingers in delight.

With a brick of cream cheese, butter, butter cake mix, and nutmeg asked for in the recipe, you cannot go wrong.

There’s a hint of rum extract, too!
