We’ve Got A Super Festive Holiday Recipe Just for You – Stewart’s Eggnog Snickerdoodles!

Eggnog Snickerdoodle cookies with an "It's flavor time!" wave

It’s cookie baking season, and we’re so egg-cited we just can’t hide it! While it’s definitely the time for cookies, it just so happens that National Eggnog Day (December 24th)  is approaching, so we thought we’d combine two of our favorite holiday treats in a delicious recipe just for you.

These yummy Eggnog flavored snickerdoodles are topped with a creamy Eggnog buttercream frosting, both using our fan-favorite Eggnog (made with New York State’s Best Milk!) These are the perfect treat to enjoy with family and friends, so go ahead and bake away!



1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp Stewart’s Eggnog
2 ¾ cup flour
1 ½ tsp cream of tartar
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Sugar mixture:
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup Stewart’s Eggnog
1 tbsp nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, vanilla, & Eggnog. Mix for 1-2 minutes. Then, stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt until combined.

In a small bowl stir together the sugar mixture. Roll the cookie dough into balls (if you want, you can refrigerate the dough for 20 mins first. This helps the flavors combine so you get an extra-delicious cookie!) Then drop these into the cinnamon sugar mixture, making sure they’re completely covered.

Place cookies on baking sheet. To make flatter cookies, press down in the center of the ball, then place in oven. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until brown around the edges.

For the Frosting:

In a large mixing bowl, beat softened butter & vanilla extract until creamy. Alternately add in the powdered sugar and Eggnog, beating between each addition until smooth.

Once the cookies are cool, frost them and top with some cinnamon sugar for that extra touch!

(P.S. This frosting is amazing with just about any holiday treat. Toss it on top of soft baked gingerbread cookies, chocolate cupcakes, or even a delicious holiday spice cake!)
