Ingredients

Cookie

3/4 cup
sugar
3/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/3 cup
prepared eggnog
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
vanilla
2 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon
salt

Frosting

3 cups
powdered sugar
4 to 6 tablespoons
prepared eggnog
1 to 2
food colors
Mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add 1/3 cup eggnog, egg, and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.
  3. Heat oven to 375°F.
  4. Combine powdered sugar and enough eggnog for desired spreading consistency in small bowl; mix well. Remove one-third of frosting; divide into 2 small bowls. Tint each bowl of frosting with food color as desired.
  5. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 3- to 4-inch snowman cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
  6. Frost snowmen with white frosting. Use tinted frosting to decorate cookies, as desired. Add miniature chocolate chips for eyes and buttons.

Recipe Tips

For wavy effect, pipe tinted frosting in parallel lines. Drag toothpick through frosting before it sets.

Since there is eggnog in the frosting, do they need to be refrigerated ?

Wonderful!! Make 2 batches or they will be gone so fast you will wonder if you actually baked cookies. The hint of nog and nutmeg makes this the best cut out cookie my family and I have ever tasted.

These are delicious!! I've been making these for Christmas for 3 years now. The dough is so easy to work with. If you don't like to make cut-out sugar cookies because they never work...these do! The egg nog taste is so reminiscent of the holidays. Everyone loves them and they fly off the cookie tray! I cut them into different shapes each year.
