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!
To add to the ease of baking, we recommend using a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or with my personal choice of a silicone non-stick baking mat.

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.

Oddly enough I’ve never thought of using eggnog to make cookies. I’ve never tried eggnog fudge either. I love eggnog though. I bet I’d love these too.

These look pretty good and easy to make
What is the reason for not using a hand mixer? I have arthritis & it is very difficult to mix by hand.
We recommend mixing by hand so that the dough isn’t overworked and the cookies rise better. If you need to use an electric mixer, just be sure to use the very lowest setting and only mix until all the ingredients are combined.
How many cookies does the recipe make?
Are these easily doubled or should I make separate batches?
