This Easy Cake Mix Eggnogg Cookies recipe proves that Christmas cookies can be simple to make yet still super delicious.
When I think of Christmas, I think of the parties my mom and dad would host. Although I was just a kid, I remember mom always bought a LOT of eggnog.
Not only did she serve eggnog to drink, but she also used it in her baking. My favorite was her Easy Cake Mix Eggnog Cookies Recipe.
I have to admit, as an adult, I’m not as big of a fan of eggnog as my husband. I swear he could drink it by the gallon! The kids and I do love to add it to our holiday recipes, just like my mom did. Not only do I use it in mom’s Easy Cake Mix Eggnog Cookies Recipe, but in Eggnog Fudge and Eggnog Cheesecake. Yummy!!
As an adult, I look back and wonder how mom made the holidays so magical. There were 6 of us, so she had her hands full just with the kids! How she found time to do the extras that come with the holidays is beyond me! I try to make life as easy as I can, especially during the holidays.
That is why using tasty shortcuts like using a box cake mix in my cookies recipes is a huge help. What I love about this recipe is how easy it is and that I typically already have all the ingredients.
We always have a few boxes of cake mix and the dairy that goes with it. All I need is some eggnog and a little nutmeg and I am ready to go! Let’s see how to make this deliciously easy recipe!

How to make Egg Nog Cake Mix Cookies:
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350. In a small bowl, add all your ingredients.
Step 2: Stir together with a sturdy spoon. Do not use a hand or stand mixer.
Step 3: Divide the cookie dough into 1″ balls, and place on a lined baking sheet. If the mixture is hard to roll into balls, place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
Step 4: Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
