Total Time



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


3 cups powdered sugar

4 to 6 tablespoons prepared eggnog

1 to 2 food colors

Mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to make

  1. STEP 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. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 6

    Frost snowmen with white frosting. Use tinted frosting to decorate cookies, as desired. Add miniature chocolate chips for eyes and buttons.

Tip #1

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