I’m getting seasonal in the kitchen this week with a Christmas cookie sandwich recipe that screams holiday vibes. It’s a gingerbread egg nog cookie sandwich recipe that is super easy to make and tastes amazingly rich (in a good way). And to make things more interesting, I’ve teamed up with a bunch of my blogger friends to share their favorite holiday cookie recipes too…it’s a Christmas cookie squad.
Super Easy Gingerbread Cookie
You can use your fave gingerbread recipe for the cookie OR try this simple gingerbread cookie hack using store bought sugar cookie dough and a few other ingredients. We went with the latter option and it was so easy and the cookies were seriously delicious! A bit softer than your typical gingerbread, which is kind of perfect for making cookie sandwiches.
How to Make the Egg Nog Icing
- 8 tablespoons of softened butter
- 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons of egg nog
Combine the ingredients above using a hand mixer until thoroughly mixed. Refrigerate until firm, add to a piping bag and pipe onto the center of a cookie. Then add another cookie on top to create the sandwich. And roll the outside with crushed candy cane. That’s it!
