This holiday season Mr. Fearless Dining and I have been on a cookie binge. With all of the gluten free cookie recipes on my site, I can’t believe I haven’t incorporated eggnog into a cookie recipe! I am totally embarrassed because I have so many fabulous Gluten Free Eggnog Dessert recipes!
Well, I am making this oversight up to you today with a special bonus…I am pairing this delicious dessert made with eggnog with my favorite white wine, CK Mondavi’s Chardonnay. The creaminess of the chardonnay works beautifully with these eggnog crinkle cookies!
CK Mondavi’s Chardonnay is fresh with a slightly fruity taste of apple and pear with a hint of oak aftertaste that just tastes so good with the creaminess of eggnog. Their 2015 Chardonnay won a Silver Medal at the tastings 2016 World Wine Championship!

Shopping List for this Gluten Free Eggnog Cookie Recipe:

- Almond flour
- Sugar in the Raw
- Powdered sugar
Are you ready to see how easy these eggnog crinkle cookies are to make?
The first step is to add all of the dry ingredients to a large bowl. Use a whisk to blend thoroughly.
The next step is to add your wet ingredients to a bowl. Whisk to blend until it is frothy.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Your eggnog cookie dough will be somewhat stiff like in this photo. You want it to be a bit stiff so that you can roll it into balls.
Use a cookie scoop to make eggnog cookie dough balls. Drop the balls onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roll the balls with your hands to make these into round balls.
(You may think I am crazy, but these cookies also pair with CK Mondavi’s Sauvignon Blanc…it totally surprised me, but I think it is the powdered sugar glaze on the cookies that brings something wonderful out in this wine too!)
Roll each cookie ball in powdered sugar. This is what will make the crinkle finish to these cookies.
Use a mug to smoosh the cookie dough balls flatter.
Here is a tray of smooshed gluten free eggnog cookie dough balls ready to bake. You will want to bake these cookies at 350F degrees for 8 minutes to bake.
You can definitely make these gluten free eggnog cookies without the powdered sugar. Your cookies will be like regular cookies, and will not have the crinkle finish.
You can use regular eggnog in this recipe, or a dairy-free eggnog. If you choose to make these cookies dairy free, use either almond milk eggnog or coconut milk eggnog. Substitute the butter for a dairy free butter or coconut oil.
If you prefer homemade eggnog, check out this yummy homemade eggnog recipe by my cooking hero Alton Brown.
