Spiked Eggnog Cookie Tray
COOKIES! Glorious cookies! Did I mention that I love cookies? Okay, you get the idea.
I especially look forward to sampling the cookie trays around Christmas.
Christmas cookies appear for only a few weeks each year. We dig out the gingerbread, thumbprint, pizzelle and kiffles recipes. Santa heads, trees, snowmen and ribbon bow cutouts sprinkled with red and green sugar.
We don’t shun chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies during holidays. All cookies are welcome!
Christmas meant getting to choose which press cookie shapes and spritz dough flavors I’d like my Mom to make. Twisting and squeezing dough through the press was quite a job. Mom was a pro at it. She could drop cookies row by row without breaking even one. I’d get to decorate the green wreaths with cinnamon dots. Chocolate Scotties never barked at being sprinkled red and green. Blue sugar stars baked aside chocolate reindeer.
Cookies taste great all by themselves. Of course it doesn’t hurt to have a tall mug of hot chocolate or coffee handy. Even eggnog.
Eggnog may sound strange to you as an accompaniment for cookies but it really works well. So does putting some eggnog in the cookies!
Iced eggnog cookies with a bit of rum or rum extract in the batter and frosting tastes so good.
You can use any kind of eggnog in place of liquid in a recipe. I used to make my own eggnog. Its a bit of work but worth it. Purchased eggnog works great for baking. For extra richness I added a yolk.
Spiked Eggnog Cookies taste like creamy rum flavored eggnog in every bite!
