These delicious Eggnog Snickerdoodle Cookies are chewy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, and sure to be a huge hit with your friends and family! They also make a great homemade Christmas gift idea that’s perfect for friends, family, neighbors, and teachers!
Christmas is just around the corner, and we kicked off our holiday baking this week with these mouthwatering eggnog snickerdoodle cookies that are melt-in-your-mouth incredible!
I’ve mentioned time and time again how much my family enjoys Horizon Organic products (and I love knowing I’m choosing quality organic foods for my family with no artificial colors or flavors!), so it should come as no surprise that when it was time to start my holiday baking, I immediately reach for Horizon Organic. For these delectable snickerdoodles, I incorporated Horizon Organic Lowfat Eggnog and Unsalted Butter, and I would have loved to use Horizon Organic brown eggs in the recipe as well (they are seriously the yummiest eggs ever!), but my store was out of them this week – bummer!
The Horizon Organic eggnog gives these cookies a rich depth of flavor and an additional layer of spices that marry perfectly with the traditional snickerdoodle ingredients. SO delicious!
To begin, mix up the cookie dough according to the recipe below, and roll each dough ball in a blend of cinnamon and sugar before baking.
These cookies are the perfect blend of soft, chewy, thick, and fluffy, and they’re packed full of spiced eggnog flavor! They were a HUGE hit with my family, and I’m sure that they’re going to become a regular addition to our holiday baking menu!
Tie a stack of cookies with a length of baker’s twine or ribbon and place them in a plastic bag for an easy peasy gift idea! Our family is going to give our neighbors these yummy cookies for Christmas this year!
The recipe below makes 3 dozen cookies, but it is easy to double or even triple the recipe to make larger batches. These delightful cookies would be fantastic at holiday bake sales, too!
Horizon Organic Lowfat Eggnog is only available for a limited time, so pick it up while you can! I love that it has 40% less fat than traditional eggnog and only 140 calories per serving, plus, it’s delicious, of course! It’s the key ingredient to making these cookies taste so amazing!
