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.

Great cookies! Snickerdoodles are my favorite and I love eggnog so these are a perfect combination. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

These baked up nicely! I also used the jamacian rum and brabdy. They were a hit!

Such great cookies! I love the light flavor and texture they have and that they are not super sweet. I used my 1 in cookie scoop and got 34 cookies. Made for a bake sale at DSs school and kept a dozen for us. Made for Photo Forums 2010 Holiday Celebration.
