Eggnog kringla cookies

Yield: 60
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Additional Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 38 minutes


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup dairy eggnog
  • Sifted powdered sugar and ground nutmeg for topping (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg.
  2. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixer bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds or till softened.
  4. Add sugar and beat till fluffy.
  5. Add egg and beat well. Add flour mixture and eggnog alternately, beating till well mixed.
  6. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  7. Working with half of the dough at a time, on a floured surface, roll rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough into pencil-like strips, about 8 inches long and 4 inches thick. (Keep remaining dough chilled.)
  8. On an ungreased cookie sheet, loop one end of the strip over the other end to form an oval with the two ends overlapping. How to make classic eggnog kringla cookies
  9. Bake in a 350 (F) oven for 6 to 8 minutes or till edges just turn light brown.
  10. Transfer to a wire rack; cool. If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar and nutmeg.


Tip: If the dough gets too stiff for your mixer as you’re adding the flour mixture, you may want to stir in the last part by hand.

Note: These instructions are a simplified kringla shape. The traditional kringla looks like a pretzel. For this shape, roll dough into 10-inch ropes. Shape each into a loop, crossing 1-1/2 inches from ends. Twist rope at crossing point. Lift loop over to ends and seal, forming a pretzel shape.
