Grandma's Rum Eggnog Cookie Recipe

Sunday, December 15, 2013
The aroma baking these alone is hard to resist waiting until they are cooled off to eat. A very nice addition to the Christmas cookie tray or just because your wanting to bake something new and different today! These are not overly sweet and just a hint of rum makes them super special for the adults. Leave it out and add milk for the kids or better yet separate the dough to make both of you happy! Happy Baking with cinnamon spice and everything nice!

1 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup eggnog
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and cinnamon each
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons dark rum or rum flavoring
1 cup chocolate chips or raisins if you prefer
Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts of any kind
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg

In a large mixing bowl cream the sugar and butter together. Add the egg, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda,  salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and rum. Stir in the flour then fold in the chocolate chips and nuts if using.
Roll dough in small balls. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets.  Bake at 375 degrees until light brown around 12 to 15 minutes depending how big you shape them. Cool completely, drizzle with frosting.

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon rum or rum flavoring (optional)

2 or 3 tablespoons of heavy cream or eggnog or more to reach desired consistency.

Blend until smooth drizzle over cooled cookies.
