There are loads of snickerdoodle recipes here on Zaar but I didn't see one like this. These are very flavorful cookies that are easy to make. I substitute actual brandy and rum for the extracts.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400º. In large mixer bowl, combine all cookie ingredients. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often until well mixed (2 to 4 minutes).
  2. In a small bowl, stir together sugar mixture ingredients.
  3. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 inch balls; roll in sugar mixture.
  4. Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly brown.

These eggnog snickerdoodles are amazing! I mixed them up a month or two ago, but I never had a chance to bake them up so I froze the dough. They baked up perfectly. I added a bit of cinnamon to the nutmeg and sugar that I rolled the cookies in. These were soft and tasty cookies which have been placed in my permanent recipe book. Great cookies! Thank you.

REALYY GOOD COOKIES! I made these this early this morning as I couldn't wait to try them. I did increase the nutmeg slightly and used 1 teaspoon real brandy, the cream of tartar makes them more on the crispy side. I baked mine in an air-convection oven at 350 for about 8 minutes. Great cookie recipe! thanks Lvs2Cook!...Kitten:)
