Eggnog Snickerdoodles

I am joining in on the Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies with Lisa. Today’s theme is traditional cookies.

If you love eggnog and you love cookies (which is pretty traditional), or you just love desserts in general, these cookies are for you!

I got this recipe from my friend Melissa a few years back. They are now my go to holiday cookie. I have never heard a complaint!


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 cups plus 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp rum extract
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup refrigerated French vanilla non-dairy creamer
  • 5 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, and 2 cups of sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in egg and rum extract.

Combine milk and creamer. Set aside

Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda.

Gradually add to creamed mixture, alternately with the milk mixture, beating well after each addition

In small bowl, combine nutmeg and remaining sugar.

Shape dough into small bowls and roll in nutmeg mixture.

Place 2 in apart on on un-greased baking sheets.

Flatten slightly with a glass.

Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown.

Cool for minutes before removing from pans.

Note:  One batch goes a long way.

It’s an easy recipe and will become your go to snickerdoodle! So yummy!
