You won’t be able to resist these! Pour yourself a glass of some classic nog and enjoy a delicious cookie inspired by the holiday season!

Instructions

For the cookies:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Beat in one egg at a time, making sure to wipe down the sides of the bowl in between each egg addition. Mix in the eggnog and vanilla extract until combined. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. With the mixer speed on low, slowly add the flour mixture into the butter mixture until a dough has formed. Use a rounded tablespoon scoop to scoop the cookie dough into balls onto a non-greased baking sheet, placing them at least a couple inches apart.
  3. Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes, or until the cookies have set and are starting to turn golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat this process until all the dough has been used. 

For the frosting:

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese and butter on medium until smooth, about a couple minutes. Add in the almond extract, eggnog and nutmeg and mix to combine. 
  2. With the mixer speed on low, slowly add in one cup of powdered sugar at a time until all of it has been added and the frosting is creamy. Once the cookies have cooled completely, frost each cookie with the prepared frosting. Enjoy!
