For all you Eggnog lovers, I found the perfect recipe for you in the December issue of People magazines StyleWatch. “The Hills” Lauren Conrad shares her mom’s delicious family recipe.
Makes 2 dozen.
2  1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp + 1 tbsp ground nutmeg
1  1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup eggnog
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F 
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter with an electric mixer to form a grainy paste. Add eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks. Beat at medium speed until smooth.
  • Add the flour mixture to the eggnog mixture, and beat at low-speed until just combined. Do not over mix
  •  Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 1 inch apart. Sprinkle lightly with 1 tbsp nutmeg.  Bake for 23-25 minutes or until bottoms turn light brown.
  • Immediately transfer to cool flat surface with a spatula

I’ll  make this as dessert for Christmas dinner, but I’m gonna add some RUM. You can’t have eggnog without rum lol. Enjoy!
