If you love regular snickerdoodle cookies, you are going to die over how good these eggnog snickerdoodle cookies are!



Snickerdoodle Cookies:

  • 2 sticks (8 oz) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum, such as Myer’s
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup eggnog

Sugar Coating:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about two minutes. You may need to pause the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the rum and vanilla and mix for 10 seconds. Add the eggs and beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the dry ingredients to the mixer and mix on low. Add the eggnog while the dry ingredients are mixing in. Mix until the dough starts to clump together. Using a 2 oz scoop, portion the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees f. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Roll the cookie dough in the sugar mixture until well coated and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Give the cookies at least 2-3 inches of space as they will spread a bit (you may need two trays). Bake one tray at a time (keeping the other in the fridge) for 15-17 minutes, until the cookies are just barely turning golden brown and are puffy in the middle. Cool on a wire rack. Repeat with the second tray. Cool slightly before serving.
