More Holiday Baking

What to do with all this eggnog piling up in the fridge? Well, eggnog cookies it is! Described as "great", "have a sweet ginger taste", "delicious", these cookies are easy to make and store well. The recipe is a mix and match from the hundreds of eggnog cookies' recipes on the net, which, by the way, all share the same ingredients to a large extent.

  • Cream 1.5 cups butter with 2.5 cups sugar
  • Add 1 cup eggnog, 2 tsps vanilla and 4 egg yolks, beat at medium speed with mixer until smooth
  • Mix in a separate bowl 4.5 cups flour, 2 tsps ground nutmeg, 2 tsps baking powder and 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until just combined, do not over mix
  • Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets, 1 inch apart
  • 300 oven, 20 - 23 minutes
