How to Make Eggnog Sandwich Cookies

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.

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
