Eggnog Christmas Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup eggnog
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 cinnamon
  • 2 tsp rum
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking pan with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  2. Whisk together all of your dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg), set aside.
  3. Grab a handful of your dry ingredients blend and coat your raisins in it (this will ensure that your raisins don’t sink to the bottom of your cookies).
  4. In a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, or with a handheld mixer, beat the butter and the brown sugar until it reaches a light color and a fluffy consistency.
  5. Reduce speed and add the wet ingredients, one at a time (egg yolk, eggnog, rum).
  6. Slowly add the flour blend until combined, making sure you don’t overmix.
  7. Slowly, with the use of a spatula, fold in the raisins..
  8. Refrigerate your cookie dough for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  9. Portion your cookie dough with the use of an ice cream scoop. I used 1 1/2 tbs of dough for each cookie.
  10. Bake for approx. 9-12 min, or until the edges are golden.
  11. Transfer to cooling racks and let them cool completely.
