  • 2/3 cup Promised Land Dairy Old-Fashioned Eggnog
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • Instructions

    For the Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a large baking sheet. In a large bowl cream together butter, 1 cup sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes on high speed). Add eggnog, eggs, and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, and cream of tartar. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • In a small bowl whisk together remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll cookie dough into 1-inch balls, then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place 1-inches apart on prepared baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until very lightly golden brown. Allow to cool completely on wire racks. 
  • For the Filling

  • In a large bowl cream together butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until very light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes on high speed. Add salt, and gradually add powdered sugar until completely incorporated. Add 1/4 cup eggnog and mix on high speed until light and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add more eggnog as needed to reach a smooth, spreadable consistency (but not runny). 
  • Flip half of the cookies up-side down, spread with filling, then top with a second cookie right-side up. Serve immediately or store in airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
