Day 11: Egg Nog Cookies
Egg Nog Cookies
(Makes 42- Adapted from Food.com)
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp Hain baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg (then extra for topping)
1 1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup light egg nog (CF Burger Creamery Light)
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg yolks
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients from flour to nutmeg.
In a separate bowl, cream your butter and sugar.
Ready for action.
Pour in your light egg nog.
Stir until combined and try not to scoop it out with your hands and eat it raw. If it's too soft, chill the dough for about 15 minutes.
Then get a small cookie scoop and get down to business.
Place on silpat or cookie sheet about 2" apart.
Sprinkle on a little nutmeg before baking. It makes all the difference.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. The bottoms should look glassy but not brown or they'll dry out.
After 2 minutes, transfer them to a rack to cool.
Enjoy with your favorite assorted beverage. Egg nog for him...skim milk for me!
