These cookies started out as a recipe that took 5 lbs of flour. I finally got it down to only 5 cups. They are soft and a complement for the milk that goes with them.

Yum! These are a good alternative to your average Christmas cookie. The nutmeg mixed with eggnog is a great flavor combination. We rolled these out a bit thicker and the cookie was moist and chewy. The decorating possibilities are endless! All that's missing is a big glass of milk. Delish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Nutmeg Christmas Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream the shortening and sugar.
  2. Add the next 5 ingredients mixing in between each addition.
  3. Alternate the flour and eggnog.
  4. It will be a little sticky but remember these are a rolled cookies so they will pick up the flour from your board.
  5. I do a little at a time. Lightly flour your board, roll to about 1/4" thick. Thicker if you like a softer cookie.
  6. Cut out with your choice of cutters.
  7. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes; 2-4 more if you want a crispy cookie.
  8. Let cool.
  9. Frost with your favorite frosting. Me, I like the buttercream for these cookies.
