Hi Greg, I love your blog. I check in every morning to see what you have created! I intend to make one of your cookie creations for my holiday cookie trays this year. With so many to choose from however I am having a hard time making up my mind!

I wanted to let you know that if you are in the market for it; King Arthur flour online has eggnog flavor and just today free shipping.


I have eggnog flavored coffee syrup. I think it must double as extract. It says great for baking, and I use the vanilla syrup in place of extract in all the baking I do. I was thinking I may try to use this- do you think I could do it in place of the eggnog and butterscotch? Or as an addition to the eggnog and leave out the butterscotch?

Can't wait to make these when I get home!

Hi, Diane. Thank you so much! That is so nice of you. :-)

And thanks for the heads-up about the eggnog flavoring at the KA site. I'll add a link in this post.

Hi, Em. That's so neat...I've never heard of eggnog-flavored syrup before. I think it would be safe to replace the butterscotch chips with the syrup. I'm all for using what you've got on hand. But, not having tasted the syrup before, I'd be careful about how much I used. If it's super sweet or super potent, use just a tablespoon or two instead of a full quarter cup that would replace the butterscotch chips.

And thanks for the link the the eggnog flavoring at the KA site!

Hi, Judd. Thanks for trying out the recipe. Please do let me know what you and your wife think! :-)


Hi Greg,

I'm planning to make up a batch of cookies to use as a Secret Santa gift this week. I'd love to try out these eggnog cookies since they're perfect for the holiday season, but I have some time constrains--I have to make the dough one day, store it in the fridge, and then bake them a day later. Do you think that would be okay with these cookies or will refrigeration ruin them? Thanks!

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi, Jessa. I don't think you'll have a problem refrigerating the dough for a day before baking. In fact, check this out:

When it comes to chocolate chip cookies, the baked cookies taste best when the dough has rested for a bit. I don't see why this wouldn't work for these eggnog cookies too. :-)


Hey Greg! Thinking of making these for my family's Christmas Eve and have no idea where to find rum extract? Any hints would be great.

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi, April! How are you?! I found the rum extract in my grocery store...right next to vanilla and other extracts. It's from McCormick. Here's a link to a pic so that you can see what it looks like:

If you can't find the rum extract at your grocery store, I think regular old rum will work fine!


mmmmm rum. hehe. I guess I just never noticed the extract on the shelf with the others.

Have a great holiday!!

Oatmeal Cookie Guy

Hi, April. Have fun in the baking aisle. :-) Happy Holidays...and say hi to your mom for me!
