Quick and Easy Eggnog Sugar Cookies

Christmas is just around the corner! These quick & easy eggnog sugar cookies are delicious and festive.

For the sugar cookie itself, this recipe uses Eileen’s pre-made Sugar Cookie Dough, which is available at the Howling Cow Cafe and for home delivery customers through the New Year. Don’t feel bad, using pre-made dough is not cheating. It’s called using your resources!


For the cookies, you’ll need:

  • 1 tub of Eileen’s Colossal Sugar Cookie Dough

For the eggnog frosting, you’ll need:

  • 4 tablespoons softened Meadow Gold salted butter
  • 2 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Morning Fresh Dairy Eggnog
  • a dash of nutmeg


Roll dough on lightly floured surface to desired thickness. Cut out cookie using cookie cutters. Or, roll in balls & flatten to make circular cookies.
Bake cookies for 15 minutes at 315 degrees.
While cookies are baking, in a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and butter until fluffy.
Slowly add powdered sugar. Mix in Morning Fresh Dairy Eggnog to reach desired consistency (start with 1 tablespoon and keep adding!).
Spread frosting over cooled cookies. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Enjoy!
