Eggnog Snicker-doodle Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup eggnog
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
For Rolling the cookies
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine your dry ingredients together in one bowl. Flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and mix to combine with a whisk.
Next, add room temperature butter and your sugars together and mix with an electric mixer. Once combined add your egg and then mix. Add your eggnog and vanilla and mix.
In quarters add your flour mixture to your sugar mixture. I like to go in thirds. Mix until combined after ever quarter.
Take a spatula and combine your dough into a ball getting any left over flour from the sides of the bowl into the mixture. Cover with seran wrap and place in the fridge for 2 hours.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place parchment paper onto a cookie sheet or two.
Combine cinnamon and sugar into a bowl for rolling. Take 1-2 inch chunks of cookie batter and roll into a ball. Flatten it between your hands. Place ball on your pan about two inches apart from each cookie.
Bake for 5 minutes to maintain a chewy consistency. And, enjoy with some eggnog and Jack Daniels!
