Similar to snickerdoodles, these are packed with a bit of an eggnog punch!
makes 3 dozen
2 1/2 cups flour, all purpose
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup purchased eggnog
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks
2 to 3 tsp ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 300°. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Blend well with a whisk and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl cream sugar and butter with an electric hand-held mixer. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks; beat at medium speed until smooth. Add the flour mixture and beat at low speed just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to a flat surface with a spatula.
