Two of my favorites, okay well I have a lot of favorites but eggnog...oh yeah, it's at the top of the favorites list. Then snickerdoodles..one of my "go to" cookies, there aren't many people that don't like snickerdoodles. When I saw this recipe I just had to give it a try and I am not disappointed at all. They are scrumptious!! They are so good that I only allowed 6 to be eaten, the rest are hiding in the freezer for the holidays. (Yes, all 6 were gone immediately) Give them a try, their crispy outside and chewy inside are hard to resist.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 3/4 cup sugar, divided
2 eggs (or Ener G egg replacer)
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. rum extract (I used 1/2 tsp.)
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground nutmeg
In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs (or egg replacer) and extract.
Combine flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
In a shallow bowl, combine the nutmeg and remaining sugar. Roll dough into 1 inch balls; roll in sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. (I always spray my cookie sheets)
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes (I baked mine at 375 degrees for 10 minutes and they were great, your choice) or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
