Eggnog Snickerdoodles


This cookie really tastes like eggnog even though there is no eggnog in it.  I use real brandy and spiced rum instead of the extracts for a fuller flavor.


Eggnog Snickerdoodles


2 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, no substitutes
2 eggs
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon brandy extract
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Sugar Mixture

1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Heat oven to 400º.

In large mixer bowl, combine all cookie ingredients. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often until well mixed (2 to 4 minutes).

In a small bowl, stir together sugar mixture ingredients. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 inch balls; roll in sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly brown.

Makes 24-30 cookies.


Merry Christmas  Baking!
