As long as I don’t think about how unhealthy it is, I love eggnog at the holidays. It has such a unique and creamy flavor that is good hot, cold, with rum… any way you want it! I am happy, too, that there are now almond milk-based versions. They are a little better for you, at least.
These cookies are also a great way to get your eggnog fix. They absolutely melt in your mouth! I assure that these will become a holiday favorite in your cookie repertoire.
Prep Step! Measure out all of your ingredients, and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients with a fork. In a stand mixer, beat the butter and the powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the extracts and eggnog. Adding a third of the dry ingredients at a time, incorporate the dry ingredients until you form a dough.
Pinch off amounts that are about the size of two Tablespoons, and roll them into balls. Bake at 350°F for 13- 15 minutes. Cool on a cooling rack for about 20 minutes, or until room temperature.
While the cookies cool, melt the chocolate. Dip the cooled cookies into the chocolate, and let them drip and harden on the cooling rack. Before they cool completely, sprinkle holiday or winter-themed sprinkles on the top! Enjoy!
