Eggnog Cookies


I just love these cookies!  It really makes the season for me.  I hope you enjoy them too!  They also go great with a glass of eggnog.  I mean, you can never have enough eggnog!


Eggnog Cookies
Makes about 60

For these you'll Need:
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg 
  • 3/4 cup butter (do not use margarine) 
  • 1-1/2 cup sugar 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 cup dairy or nondairy eggnog 
  • sifted powder sugar 
  • ground nutmeg


Directions:
  • In large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, cream butter, about 30 seconds. Add the sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and mix well. Add the flour mix and eggnog alternately to the sugar/butter mix. Cover and chill at least 4 hours. Dough may still be sticky but it is a soft dough. 
  • Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees F.
  • On a lightly floured surface, take one tablespoon of the dough and roll it into a ball with your hands. On an ungreased cookie sheet, place the cookies.  Usually about 12 go to a sheet. Dip a fork in a glass of water then press lightly on the balls twice to form a criss-cross pattern. 
  • Bake 6 to 8 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Remove cookies and cool on wire rack. While still warm, sprinkle tops with powdered sugar and nutmeg.

I used lots of Nutmeg.  It really ups the flavor.
