Egg Nog Snickerdoodles

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 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
2 eggs
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!
Happy Baking!
