These cookies are a classic, soft, buttery, perfectly sweet, and tender sugar cookie. The filling is spiced too perfection with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

Stamping Your Cookies

I purchased my cookie stamp from Home Goods but you can find them on Amazon too. My cookie stamp came with 4 interchangeable imprint patterns that I can switch in and out to use when needed. Be sure to really press your stamp into the cookie dough enough to make a noticeable impression on each cookie. If your dough is too hard after ocming out of the fridge to make an impression that shows up, let it sit out for a few minutes to soften a bit so you’ll be able to make a more noticeable impression.

Eggnog Spices

Eggnog is spiced with cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, and nutmeg. Together these spices work in perfect harmony to make the deliciously warm and sweet eggnog that we all know and love.

  • Cinnamon – cinnamon has a very distinct smell and flavor. The scent is comforting and warm and of course, spicy. Cinnamon is not too overpowering when used in a reasonable ratio and can take so many of our delicious baked goods to the next level.
  • Cloves – Cloves are strong and sweet both in flavor and aroma. The spice has a hint of earthiness and is very bold in flavor. A little bit goes a long way for this spice so it’s best to use it in moderation. You can always start off with a small amount of this spice and add more if needed.
  • Vanilla – Ahhh vanilla. Every bakers best friend. Vanilla is the classically warm, sweet aroma that we all stop and pause to smell before adding it to our baked goods. This ingredient is a staple in most households and is extremely versatile. The rich, sweet flavor vainlla presents in our baked goods can vary depending on the quality.
  • Nutmeg – Nutmeg is extremely fragrant and has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor and scent. Nutmeg is a very potent flavor that is extremely versatile in the kitchen and can add such depth and flavor to your baked goods.

  • Once the dough has chilled, this is optional but you can use a cookie stamp to make an imprint on each cookie then use a circle cookie cutter to cut the cookie to fit the shape of the imprint. Only half of the cookies will need imprints since the bottom side won’t be seen.

  1. So not sure what happened but my dough turned out too crumbly. I put in exact ingredients and scrapped sides several times.

    1. Hi there – I’m sorry to hear that. I promise I test every recipe several times before sharing and have also seen a lot of people enjoy making this recipe on their own. I would double check the ingredient measurements as well as ensure that the butter you used was at room temp or slightly softened. Sometimes using cold ingredients can make it harder for the dough to come together nicely. Please let me know if I can answer any questions you might have and I hope you have a happy holiday season!!
