The second cookie I’m sharing on my second annual 7 days of Christmas Cookies are these EggNog Snickerdoodles.
They are absolutely perfect for the eggnog fan. They are rolled in a cinnamon/nutmeg sugar to give that snickerdoodle flare. The texture is thick and chewy, just like a perfect snickerdoodle should be.
I got in the kitchen one Sunday afternoon after church while Zack and Kelsie were in the yard cutting up trees and limbs, and hauling them to the road. I baked half of the cookies for my annual cookie posts, and this was one of those that I did that day.
This makes SO many cookies, you may want to half the recipe, if you’re not sharing taking them to a cookie exchange or party. OR, you could eat them all yourself! 😉 They are that delicious!
I kept about a dozen, sent half with Zack to work for their Thanksgiving lunch, and then gave about a dozen or so to the cable guys that were running the lines to our house.
As of 11/24, when I’m scheduling this out, we are still without internet. Those guys were super nice, and apologized for not knowing when we would have internet back up and running.
The only reason I’m able to schedule all of these out, and get a TON of work accomplished was my awesome sister n law. She let me borrow their wifi hot spot from work.
I didn’t anticipate working as much as I have, but it made me realize that I will never get into this situation again. I will for sure be scheduling posts and working on things far in advance.
I am almost finished with December, and then I’m going to push into overdrive and work January in as little time as possible. I want to be working on Easter posts when it’s Valentine’s Day.
Y’all know all those memes that float around Facebook…the cabin in the mountains, and living without internet for a month….I can tell you that I could do it, easily.
However, after a month…it’s hard. You don’t realize how much you rely on the internet until you can’t really use it.
Think about not having a phone book…we all use Google now to search for phone numbers for businesses. I had to up my data on my phone just so we could search for numbers to roofers, contractors, etc.
Can I freeze eggnog snickerdoodles?
Yes – follow the recipe through step 4. Form the dough into a couple of discs, wrap in press and seal wrap, and place in a zip top bag. The dough will keep for up to 3 months.
When ready to use, thaw in the fridge, and then follow the rest of the instructions.
How long can I store eggnog snickerdoodles?
They will keep up to one week at room temperature when stored in an air tight container.
Do I need a particular brand of eggnog?
Any brand will do.
Ahhh, ok recipe…because I know y’all are here for that! 🙂

- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line 4 baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
- In a large bowl, attached to a stand mixer, cream together the butter and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.
- Add the flour mix to the butter/sugar, alternately with the eggnog. The dough will be thick and slightly sticky.
