So about these cookies -- they are good. I won't say they are mind-blowing or out-of-this-world, but they are perfectly Christmas-y and very delicious. It's about finding the best of both worlds (festive and tasty) and these cookies accomplish that beautifully! Oh, and did I mention they are SUPER easy? Yeah, that's what sold me. Enjoy, and Happy Holidays from my kitchen to yours :)
What you'll need:
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup eggnot
- 1 cup powdered sugar (for rolling the cookies)
How you make it:
Mix the flour, cornstarch, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside. Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the eggnog. Then, gradually add the flour mixture and combine until everything is nicely incorporated. Lastly, refrigerate the dough for at least an hour, but preferably overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat the over to 350 degrees. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, and place approximately 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Back for 12-14 minutes, until nicely golden brown. Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes, and then roll the cookies in the powdered sugar.
The End! Enjoy!
