How to Make Eggnog Sandwich Cookies
This recipe starts with making the cookie dough. Simply beat the butter and sugar together, add the egg, vanilla, and eggnog, mixing until well combined. Then add the dry ingredients – the baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and flour and beat until combined. Form the dough into balls and then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 9-10 minutes.
Next, make the filling. Beat together butter, powdered sugar, eggnog, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spread 2-3 tbsp of the filling on half of the cooled cookies and then top with another cookie. Serve and ENJOY!
Eggnog Sandwich Cookies Questions
Can these be made dairy free?
I have not tried this but if you have a dairy free butter alternative that you like to use, I think it could work with eggnog non-dairy alternative.
Can these eggnog sandwich cookies be made ahead of time?
The cookie part can definitely be made ahead of time and even frozen, but I wouldn’t make them into sandwich cookies until you’re ready to eat them, or a day in advance.
