Holiday Eggnog Cookies

My gardener loves eggnog. He loves eggnog with brandy in it. Around the holidays we always have some of both on hand.

I found a recipe for Holiday Eggnog Cookies and thought that I'd surprise him by making a batch. These cookies are a tender, crisp and light cookie that I think would go well with a hot cup of tea. They're dusted with a hint of nutmeg - one of my favorite spices!

Susan at Food Blogga is hosting Eat Christmas Cookies, Season 2! I thought this would be a fun thing to do, so I'm sending this recipe to be included.

Holiday Eggnog Cookies
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cups butter, softened
1/2 cup eggnog
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
1 tsp ground nutmeg
2-1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 300 F. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks. Beat at medium speed with mixer until smooth. Add flour mixture and beat at low speed until just combined. Do not overmix. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Bake 20 to 23 minutes until bottom of cookies turn light brown.

    I never had eggnog in my entire life, just doesn't sound appealing to me. But, your eggnog cookies will work for me, and I am sure they are delicious.
