Santa can’t say no to these eggnog cookies

Tis the season to dust off your apron, pull out your rolling pin, and preheat the oven (or grill).

With these melt-in-your-mouth eggnog cookies, you’ll be sure to bring joy and cheer to the taste buds of friends and family. And, we can almost guarantee you’ll make it on the nice list if you leave these cookies out for Santa and his reindeer!

What you’ll need

For the cookie dough:

1 (17.5 oz) package sugar cookie mix

1 large egg

½ C melted butter

2 T eggnog

½ C cinnamon sugar

Parchment paper

For the glaze:

1 C powdered sugar

¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg (if using ground nutmeg, use a pinch less)

2 T eggnog

 

Directions

  1. Preheat your grill with a pizza stone for high indirect heat. Set pizza stone so it’s not directly over the flame. If using your propane-powered oven, heat to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a blender, mix together sugar cookie mix, egg, melted butter, and eggnog.
  3. With a tablespoon or metal scoop, drop the cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Using a rolling pin, slightly flatten the cookie and dip into cinnamon sugar.
  5. If grilling, place the baking sheet on top of the pizza stone and close the lid and bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. (Make sure to watch the heat and adjust dials to maintain 350 degrees.) If baking, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 11-13 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  6. Once done, remove baking sheet from grill or oven and allow to cool.
  7. While cookies are cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar, nutmeg, and eggnog.
  8. To avoid a mess, transfer the cooled cookies onto a baking wire rack and place on top of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  9. Transfer the glaze into a small freezer plastic bag, removing air from the top of the bag. Seal close.
  10. Cut the corner tip off one end and pipe the glaze onto the top of the cookies.
  11. Place the cookies on a decorative holiday plate and leave them by the chimney!
