Directions

1
cream the shorting and sugar
2
add the next 5 ingerdents mixing in between each addtion
3
allternate the flour and egg nog. it will be a little sticky but remember these are a rolled cookies so they will pick up the flour from your board
4
I do a little at a time, lightly flour your board, roll to about 1/4" thick. thicker if you like a softer cookies. cut out with your choice of cutters
5
bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes 2-4 more if you want a crispy cookie
6
