Christmas Cookie Exchange: Eggnog Snickerdoodles



I love cookies and eggnog- but together?! Even better!

These cookies bake up quick and are soft and chewy with a nice sugary crust on the outside. The secret to the crust is dipping them in sugar twice! (Hey, even Santa checked his list twice so this naturally works here too!)

To make a dozen, you will need:
1 cup of flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of butter
1/3 cup of egg nog ( I used soy egg nog)
2 tablespoons vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar



Topping:
4 tablespoons sugar
dash of nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix the dry ingredients and set aside.

Melt butter and pour in egg nog, vanilla, and sugars. Combine with the dry ingredients until a dough forms.


Chill dough for 10 minutes then roll into 12 balls.

Roll balls twice in the cinnamon coating, and place on parchment paper about 3 inches apart.


Bake for 15 minutes and allow to cool completely.
