Eggnog Cookies

Eggnog Cookies // Pale Yellow

These cookies were a late addition to the Christmas platter.  Great decision!  If you look at the original recipe, you can see how the dough was cut into stripes, weaved, and then cut into circles.  Gorgeous.  I made three successfully and decided it was too much work.

What you’re left with is simple, brown-spectaled yellow disks full of delightful eggnog flavor.  I was surprised how eggnoggy these cookies tasted without any actual eggnog, but I guess the dark rum and nutmeg do the trick.

Sometimes a cookie tray needs simpler cookies without all the frosting, peppermint, nuts, and flavor.  This is the cookie.  It’s like shortbread-like but softer.  Like I said earlier, the eggnog flavor is right-on, very enjoyable!

  5. Small bathroom 90′S Kitchen Remodeling – LightingWhen it comes to choosing a professional pool designer in Phoenix that will work just fine. What do you want to have a clear idea of what you will be ok. Do not buy cabinets from somebody who uses wood that is harvested from old growth forests. The dealerships are spending hundreds of thousands 90′s kitchen remodel to millions of dollars on these” voluntary” projects,
    but many say they’ll never recoup all the investment. This is because other would-behomeowners put a high value on the way a houses’ kitchen looks.
