Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These lightly sweet, super seasonal cookies were my cookie of choice when recently asked to send some holiday cheer to an Air Force Squadron stationed in Iraq. They're sturdy enough to withstand the journey and tasty enough to make absolutely anyone smile!
Cream butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add flour, baking powder, and salt, alternating with egg nog. Roll into balls the size of walnuts and place on ungreased baking sheet. Can also drop by teaspoonful on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees 10 - 12 minutes (yields approximately 3 dozen)
