|Baked Eggnog Cookies|
This recipe comes from www.cakecentral.com. I did change it a little bit. The reviews gave me some tips that I decided to use. They are tasty cookies. I like this recipe because it is almost like a sugar cookie but is a bit different. I think they should be cookies that can be enjoyed by almost everyone.
Eggnog Cookies with Eggnog Frosting
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup commercial eggnog
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup commercial eggnog
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggnog, baking soda and nutmeg. Mix well. Gradually add flour. Mix well. Divide dough in half, wrap well and refrigerate overnight.
Roll half of dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with floured cookie cutters. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool, ice and decorate, if desired.
In a small mixing bowl, beat confectioner's sugar and butter until well blended. Gradually beat in eggnog until icing is smooth.
The poster on www.cakecentral.com says that she did not use cookie cutters. Instead she rolled the dough into small balls and pressed her powdered sugar dipped finger into the center. Then she baked as directed.
For icing, she placed all the ingredients into a bowl and beat for about 15 minutes until it was fluffy.
