Happy Sunday My Friends!
Today I started pulling out my favorite recipes for cookies and treats for Christmas and I thought I'd share this one with you. It's a recipe for Egg Nog Snickerdoodles. YUM!
They are quick and easy AND they don't require a ton of ingredients (which is a must in MY kitchen!)
They are...as my Dad would say...."So good they'll make your tongue slap your brains out!"
Egg Nog Snickerdoodles
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and extract. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture.
In a shallow bowl, combine the nutmeg and remaining sugar. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
Yield: 6 1/2 dozen.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do at our house!
