Another Christmas Cookie Recipe

I made three types of cookies this year for Christmas and since I already shared my recipe that I use year after year, I decided to also share one of the new recipes that I tried this year.

Eggnog Sparkle Cookies

1 C. butter, room temperature
1 C. sugar
2 large egg yolks
1/2 C. eggnog
2 1/2 C. flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. ground nutmeg
One or assorted colors of decorating sugar (you’ll need about 1/3 C. total)
Ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Lightly butter cookie sheet.

In large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks until combined. Add eggnog.

In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and nutmeg; add to butter mixture, beating until thoroughly combined. Refrigerate dough 2 hours or until firm.

Combine decorating sugar and cinnamon on paper plate, adding about 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon for every 2 tablespoons of sugar. Roll dough into 1-inch diameter balls; roll in topping mixture. Place 2 inches apart on buttered cookie sheet.

Bake in preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes or until set.

Makes 4 to 5 dozen cookies.

I wasn’t sure about the idea of Egg Nog in cookies, but decided to give it a try and I am glad that I did. These cookies were light and delicious.
