Remember last holiday season when I told you I had been doing A LOT of baking? I even shared a little about my Christmas Baking in my Living the Dream segment. Anywho, these cookies were part of that marathon, but I never got around to posting my review. Being that they are egg not, I decided to save them for now. Enjoy 🙂
Back Then: Christmas Baking!! I L.O.V.E. baking, but I don’t really do it as often anymore as I used to. I do, however, make sure that every year for Christmas, we have tons of cookies!
After working up the Chocolate Chip Cookies & Cream Cookies last year, I decided to turn back to Inside BruCrew Life for some more delicious, soft baked cookie recipes. First, I worked up the Red Velvet Peppermint Pattie Cookie recipe, next came to the Oreo Peppermint Crunch Cookies (which you will find a review on in January), and finally I’ve come to these Eggnog Sugar Cookies. What is Christmas baking without Eggnog something?!
– 1/2 cup butter, melted – I used a whole stick of Country Crock
– 1/2 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup sugar – Winn Dixie brand
– 1 egg – mine was medium sized
– 1 teaspoon of Rum Extract – McCormick brand
– 1/4 cup Egg Nog – I used Southern Comfort Traditional Egg Nog (1 quart)
– 3 cups flour – Winn Dixie brand
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg – McCormick brand
– 1/2 cup butter, melted
– 1/2 teaspoon Rum Extract
– 1/4 cup Egg Nog
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
**All ingredients were easily found at my local Winn Dixie – not a sponsored post.
You’ll Also Need:
– Mixing Bowl
– 9″ x 13″ Casserole Dish
– Measuring Cup & Spoons
– Cooling Rack – I found a 3-Tier Cooling Rack at my local Sav-a-Lot for $7
– Aluminum Foil (optional)
– Eggnog Sugar Cookies Recipe by Inside BruCrew Life
Baking Powder: Recipe calls for it, but I didn’t use it.
Foil: I used it to line my casserole dish.
When it came to the flour, salt and nutmeg, I first added the salt and nutmeg and mixed well, then I added the flour in one cup at a time for ease in mixing and combining.
I lined my casserole dish with aluminum foil for ease in removing and easy clean up. I found the dough to be a little tough so spreading wasn’t too fun. I think next time I make these sugar cookies that I might just roll the dough, bake the cookies as I usually would and then frost.

Just for Fun, a little Behind the Scenes… This is what the kitchen was looking like when I got to finishing up these cookies. All those stacked containers are ready for gift giving. They contained two mint chocolate chip cookies, two red velvet peppermint pattie cookies, one of these eggnog sugar cookies in the center of the cookies, two brownie thumbprints and some chocolate kisses. They went over very well!
