Frosted Eggnog Cookies!!! Made with Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs! These cookies have the perfect eggnog flavor, not overwhelming and just enough amazing holiday flavor and they are topped with a delicious eggnog frosting! These cookies must be baked this holiday season!
I was never a huge fan of eggnog until recently. I think it’s because, growing up, my parents never busted out the eggnog over the holidays. Our holidays were filled with delicious hams and turkeys and Korean food and maybe this rice drink but never eggnog.
Once the cookie baking bug has got me, I can’t seem to stop. I’ve been baking up cookies like there’s no tomorrow. And the weather here in Wisconsin is perfect for it. As I type this right now, I’m looking out to a snowy, white filled winter wonderland in my backyard. It’s perfect.
And the only thing needed are these frosted eggnog cookies.
I used Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs for these cookies. Even though I’m baking my cookies, my kids are with me in the kitchen helping and cracking open eggs so I just have peace of mind.
Davidson’s Safest Choice(R) Pasteurized Eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural warm water bath to eliminate the risk of Salmonella in eggs–without changing the nutrition or flavor. Davidson’s Safest Choice(R) Pasteurized Eggs’ patented, all natural, award-winning egg pasteurization eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs before they even enter your kitchen.
These eggs look, cook, and taste just like other eggs. For me, they give me peace of mind when I’m using uncooked eggs in recipes, and even when I’m not.
These Frosted Eggnog Cookies are seriously so good! They have the perfect soft, chewy flavorful texture and consistency and I could even eat them plain, with no frosting at all! And that says a lot!
But I must say that the eggnog frosting takes these cookies from delicious to amazing! And if you’re concerned about the rum extract, you can simply omit it. No worries!
These cookies are delicious on their own so try them without the frosting as well. *If you’d like frosting on all of the cookies, DOUBLE the frosting recipe below.
