    ShaGun's Note:

    Cake-like cookies with hints of eggnog and nutmeg. I've been making these every year for Christmas since I was 12, and every year at least a few people ask for the recipe -- and continue to request them every Christmas. I've been told by lots of people that they don't want me to buy them a gift. They just want me to make these cookies for them. I love bringing these to cookie exchanges and/or giving them as gifts. I know the original recipe came out of a magazine, but I don't remember which one.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a bowl combine flour, baking powder and soda, and nutmeg. Set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl beat butter and sugar till fluffy. Add egg and beat well.
    3. 3
      To the butter/sugar/egg mixture, stir in half of egg nog. Then stir in half of flour mixture. Stir in remaining eggnog and then flour mixture. It will be very stiff.
    4. 4
      Cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
    5. 5
      Working with 1/3 of dough at time (keep the rest of the dough chilled), separate dough into 1-inch balls and roll between floured hands into a pencil-like shape, about as long as your hand. On an ungreased cookie sheet loop one end over the other to form an oval with two ends overlapping (to look like the Christian fish).
    6. 6
      Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes before edges brown. They won't look done, but they are.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle with nutmeg and powdered sugar.

      These are absolutely delicious cookies, soft and cakelike. I took your advice and took the cookies out of the oven after 8 minutes, even though they didn't look done, but when I bit into one, they were done. I also made a buttercream icing, substituting eggnog for the milk. Thanks for this great recipe, which I'll be making every year from now on.

      These are fantastic cookies! They remind me of Cream teas Scones but in a cookie format with the addition of eggnog which is my new favorite flavor these days! Thanks for a great recipe! and thanks for sharing!
