Glazed shortbread cookies flavored with eggnog and cinnamon adding a subtle flavor of the classic holiday drink.
This year I wanted to get a little bit of a head start on my holiday baking and since the hubs couldn’t wait to put up our tree a few weeks ago with our lil guy, I made Eggnog Shortbread Cookies with our favorite Christmas music playing in the background.
Shortbread cookies always remind me of when I was a little girl and used to leave cookies out for Santa. We would always have shortbread cookies around the holidays so these were one of the cookies that always made it onto Santa’s plate.
To shake things up a bit, I added a little bit of cinnamon and eggnog to the cookie dough and glaze. They still have that classic buttery taste in a thick shortbread but my family loved them even more with the subtle flavor of the warmly spiced holiday drink.

If you like eggnog, then be sure to give these cookies a try. I don’t usually drink much eggnog but I love cooking and baking with it. It adds a wonderful hint of flavor and softness to cookies and cakes especially on the next day.
While you are decorating your tree over the weekend, try adding these to your baking list. And if you’re feeling extra jolly, toss on a few festive sprinkles. ♥
