The inspiration for this recipe started where many great things do – with a cup of coffee! After adding a splash of eggnog to our favorite hazelnut blend, we stumbled upon a flavor combo that was too good not to share. Enter the Hazel-Nog cookie, because why settle for only one amazing festive flavor when you can have two?

Ingredients:

Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnut oil
  • 1/2 cup eggnog

 

HazelNog Frosting

  • ½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons Eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon hazelnut oil
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Ground nutmeg for garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy.
  3. Add yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in hazelnut oil and eggnog, and then slowly fold in dry ingredients until just combined.
  4. Using a large cookie dough scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving 2 inches on each side.
  5. Bake for 11 – 13 minutes, rotating the sheet pan once during cook time so that the cookies bake evenly.
  6. While cookies are baking, make frosting. In a large bowl, cream together all frosting ingredients until fluffy and smooth.
  7. Allow cookies to cool completely before frosting. Frost cookies and sprinkle with nutmeg for garnish.
