  • Nog’alicious Cookies


    This is the fourth year these cookies have been requested at my house. This year I’ve made a few little tweaks to the recipe. If you’re looking for a really easy and REALLY tasty Christmas Cookie that will quickly become a family favorite, these are it! Even one of my very good friends – who doesn’t like egg nog – loves these cookies.

    egg nog eggnog Christmas cookie cookies recipe

    **Modifications made in 2007 – see previous years for original recipe**

    1 c. butter softened to room temp.
    1 c. sugar
    1/2 tsp. nutmeg
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 c. **Southern Comfort Vanilla Spice** Egg Nog
    1 tsp. baking soda
    3-3/4 c. flour

    Beat butter & sugar until it’s creamy.
    Add spices, Eggnog & baking soda to butter & sugar, blend well.
    Add flour 2 cups at a time, mix (with mixer) until combined.
    Spoon onto nonstick cookie sheet, dip a cup in sugar (holiday colored sugar, sugar/cinnamon, sugar/nutmeg, your call), smoosh the dough a little – don’t flatten them.

    Bake at 375 for right around 11 minutes, when you can see the bottom edges are just gold and the tops are still creamy off-white. Do not overbake. Let cool on the cookie sheet, transfer to an airtight container to keep them soft.

    No wonder those are good. A cup o’ butter.

    We have egg allergies here. I wonder if they’d work with Silk Nog.
