LIGHT Eggnog Cookies
This is a holiday recipe that we (even my young children, who do not like eggnog) love to enjoy as a treat. The adults like to have the cookies with coffee or eggnog and the children with a big glass of cold milk.
Yield: About 45 cookies
- 2/3 c. butter
- 1 c. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 3/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c. Hood Light Eggnog
- 2 1/2 c. flour
- Eggnog frosting (simply Hood Light Eggnog and enough Confectionery Sugar to make a frosting consistency).
InstructionsBeat butter for about one minute. Add sugar, nutmeg, baking powder and salt; beat until well combined.
Add egg and eggnog; beat until well combined.
Beat in the flour until just combined.
Chill dough until easy to handle (about 2 - 3 hours).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll out dough in flour, sugar and nutmeg. Cut out cookies.
Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges are browned.
