The holiday season brings flavors to the table that we often reserve strictly for this time of year. Eggnog is one of them! Even though I have seen it in the store year-round the past several years, it’s not something I regularly pick up on shopping trips. I do have a homemade eggnog recipe that you can make from scratch – both alcohol and non-alcohol versions are available!
Cakes are more my wheelhouse when it comes to baking, but over the past few years, I have finally started seeing my cookie game step up. I’m still a big fan of drop cookies because they don’t have to be precise nor do they take any special tools or skills.
During the taste tests (aka my husband, children, and my son’s co-workers), I had several compliments on these cookies. Even people who can’t stand eggnog really enjoyed them! One thought they were holiday-themed Italian wedding cookies while another said they reminded her of lemon drop cookies. Either way, they’re easy, tasty, and impress a crowd. What more could you ask for?
Yeah! I totally did! And I promise that once you try it, you’ll be wanting to mix up this recipe and trying numerous flavors to mix it up for the season, event, or simply just because to make mouthwatering cookies that won’t hang around for long.
Recently, I discovered Jordan’s Skinny Mixes and instantly had my thoughts swirling with ideas for recipes to make. First and foremost, I had to try them, though. I have picked up numerous syrups and been disappointed more often than not. I was so impressed by the boldness of the flavors that I knew I had to share them with y’all.
If y’all haven’t noticed by now, I have an affinity toward sweet treats. I will admit that sugar is probably one of my biggest weaknesses! But knowing how terrible sugar is for me, I am learning to find substitutions that still give me the satisfaction of a dessert without the added calories and sugar.
Jordan, the founder behind Jordan’s Skinny Mixes, set out on a mission to create a perfect skinny margarita. Can I just say that most of the skinny margarita mixes available on the market are t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e. Margaritas happen to be (I know! ANOTHER!) weakness, too, and if I loved the margaritas, I knew I would love the rest of her product lineup!
Sugar Free Eggnog Syrup for a Perfect Eggnog Drop Cookie Recipe
Although the Sugar Free Eggnog Syrup a seasonal flavor and possibly out of stock, it’s important to note that you can use this recipe with any of the syrups available on the website to create a flavored cookie of your choosing. Once you discover how delicious they are, you’ll get on the list so you can be one of the first to get your hands on a bottle next time it’s in-season!
When you look at the label and see that there are 0 calories, 0 sugar, 0 carbs, and it’s Keto-friendly, you’re mind may go to the idea that it is flavorless. Let me tell y’all — it’s SO amazing and your taste buds will thank you.
MORE flavors I recommend to try this recipe:
- Peanut Butter Cup
- Mint Chocolate Chip
- Glazed Donut
- Caramel Creme Cheesecake
- Iced Cinnamon Roll
- + SO many more!
Don’t all of them sound amazing?
Save $$$ Money $$$ with my discount code!
When you visit the Jordan’s Skinny Mixes website, don’t forget to use my code to save 10% on your order! The code is:
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ cup butter, room temperature
- 1 cup sugar (or your favorite alternative)
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons of Jordan's Skinny Mixes Syrup
- 2 cups powdered sugar (or suitable substitute)
- 2 tablespoons of Jordan's Skinny Mixes Syrup
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the softened, room temperature butter and sugar (or your sugar substitute). Beat until smooth.
Add in the egg, vanilla, and syrup mix.
Add in the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Using a 1-inch cookie scoop or a small spoon, gently shape the crumbly mix into a ball form. Roll smooth between the palms of your hands. Place on the baking sheet, leaving space between each one. You DO NOT have to roll them. I did to create a uniform look of the cookies. You can simply scoop, drop, and bake!
Bake for 10 minutes, turning the tray halfway through. They won't flatten or spread very much, but that's perfectly okay. It's exactly what we want!
Remove from the oven and immediately transfer to a cooling rack. Allow to completely cool before adding the glaze.
