Eggnog Frosting Recipe

Eggnog Frosting
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: 1 1/2 cups

This basic frosting is a sweet way to use up leftover eggnog. It gives a festive flavor to sugar cookies or cupcakes.

Game plan: If you refrigerate the frosting, allow it to come to room temperature before using.

INGREDIENTS
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup Best Eggnog
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • Pinch fine salt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Place the butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape down the beater and sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  2. Turn the mixer to medium low, gradually add the powdered sugar, and beat until combined, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until the frosting is very airy and thoroughly mixed, about 2 minutes. Use immediately to frost cookies or cupcakes, or store covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.
