Holiday Eggnog Snickerdoodles
Total TimePrep: 1-1/2 hours Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
What does adding Cream of Tartar do?
Loved these! I replaced the shortening with butter and lowered the baking temp. They came out just like I hoped they would! Still nice and fluffy, but not too dry. Definitely need to keep them in a sealed container though...
The cookie turned out rather dry. When I tried flattening them out more then they turned too hard and just weren't very tasty even with a glass of milk.
I made this as per the recipe and found them to be very bland and dry.
I will try them again, but next time i will add cream of tater & eggnog to give it some bite. Also for the outside some more nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon.
I think I would put some nutmeg into the batter itself if I made these again. I replaced the milk and creamer with eggnog but I still thought they needed a bit more spice! Update: the flavor of these does improve after sitting for a few days! I liked them better without icing.
I think I'd just use eggnog instead of the creamer...
Oh my goodness...total yumminess. I did make a few changes. Since eggnog is in the title, I thought I needed it. Not wanting to waste it, I did substitute it for the evaporated milk. Since they are snickerdoodles, I added a teaspoon of cream of tartar. Like another reviewer, I didn't have rum extract, so I substituted rum. I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the nutmeg and sugar mixture. Will definitely make these again.
oh so very very good. thanks a lot for this rec.
Where is the eggnog? These are vanilla coffee creamer cookies not eggnog cookies, strange.
