I don’t like eggnog, but I do like these very festive cookies.
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups white sugar
3/4 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup eggnog
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
1 T ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
In a large bowl cream sugar and butter with an electric mixer to form a grainy paste. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks and beat at a medium speed until smooth.
Add the flour mixture and beat at a low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 1 inch apart.
Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until bottoms turn lightly brown.
What did the family think? I am not sure if the family has tried any yet, since most of them went to school for the teachers, but I tasted one (or two) and they are really good. They were especially good right out of the oven with a nice cold glass of milk. 🙂
