I am so in love with these Gingerbread Cookies with Eggnog Frosting and I’m not even a fan of eggnog, y’all! These Gingerbread Cookies are soft in the middle with a crisp outside and they are frosted with the most wonderful homemade eggnog frosting that’s super easy to whip up.
What you need for Hot Chocolate Cupcakes:
Warm spices like ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon baked into cookies during the winter just scream Christmas to me. My kitchen smelled like a warm bakery on Christmas Eve when I had these in the oven.
I am also in love with the little crackle and crunch that these have with the Turbinado Sugar on them!
What if I can’t find Turbinado Sugar?
I know it can be frustrating to find a recipe that may have a product that isn’t in your area. If you have Turbinado Sugar in your area, buy it because it’s amazing. If you can’t find Turbinado Sugar, you can also roll these cookies in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar or cinnamon & brown sugar.
However, please roll them in something haha. I tried baking these cookies without rolling them in the sugar and they just didn’t turn out well.
These cookies are frosted with eggnog frosting! Do they need to stay in the fridge?
While I’ve read conflicting information on frosting made with eggnog, I would suggest keeping the frosting in the fridge if you’re going to be making it ahead of time.
These frosted cookies should be fine to sit out for a few hours at a party or event but I wouldn’t let them sit out for a few days.
Do this frosting get hard so that I can stack these Gingerbread Cookies with Eggnog Frosting?
Not really. This frosting isn’t going to get hard like royal icing but it will firm up just a tag. You may be able to stack two cookie on top of each other but I wouldn’t stack a tower of them.
If you’re going to need to stack them to transport them to a party, I would lay the 1st layer of cookies a single layer in a container and then lay a piece of parchment paper over them before adding another layer of cookies.
