Double the Eggnog Cookies #FantasticalFoodFight

When I read that December's Fantastical Food Fight theme was eggnog, I might have done a little dance of joy. Maybe a medium dance of joy. We love eggnog in my house. I mean, we just did an Eggnog Tasting.

And, in case you don't want to click and read the results: Humboldt Creamery's Organic Eggnog was the winner in the 'sipper' category - that is to say straight from the carton with nothing added; Straus Family Creamery and Clover Organic eggnogs were the winners when we mixed them with booze. And both Jake and I preferred SNAP liqueur to rum in our nog.

I love the Fantastical Food Fight coordinated by Sarah of Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. For more information about the event, click here.

I haven't been very good at participating, but this month, I couldn't resist. We were given the challenge of making a recipe with eggnog. So. Many. Possibilities.

Double the Eggnog Cookies

I decided to make eggnog cookies with an eggnog glaze. These eggnog cookies are so moist and absolutely delicious.

Ingredients makes approximately 3 dozen
  • 1 C butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar
  • 3/4 C eggnog
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3-3/4 C flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t freshly grated nutmeg

Eggnog Glaze

  • 1-1/2 to 2 C organic powdered sugar
  • 1/4 C eggnog
  • 1 egg white
  • nutmeg for grating

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter and sugar. Add in eggnog and egg. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto parchment-lined or silicone mat-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

When you pull them out out the oven, let them cool for a minute. Then, gently flatten the top with the bottom of a mason jar.

Cool completely on a wire rack.

Whisk the glaze ingredients together to form a thick paste. Spoon a dollop on top of each cookies and carefully spread the glaze to the edge.

Use a microplane to grate fresh nutmeg over the top of the glaze. Let the glaze harden before serving.
