CHOCOLATE EGGNOG COOKIES












Alcoholic eggnog differs in each country.   For example, in America it is typically combined with bourbon, and in Europe it is typically mixed with white wine. Although, alcohol free eggnog is becoming more popular.

Here's The Recipe:

Ingredients:
  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoon baking cocoa
  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened*
  • ¼ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large egg yolks
Directions:
Preheat oven to 300° F. Heat butter and semisweet chips together to soften and melt the chips.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cocoa.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks and beat until smooth.
Add the flour mixture gradually and beat at low speed until just combined.
Drop into rounded spoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets, for 23-25 minutes, dusting tops with cocoa powder. Cool immediately.
