I just love eggnog, it's so seasonal and yummy. What better than in Christmas cookies! Recipe yield depends on the size of the cutters you use.Prep time includes 1 hour chill time.

  1. In a large bowl, combine sugar and butter. Beat until mixture is creamy, about 2 minutes.

  3. Divide the dough in half and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until it is firm, at least one hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F Roll out dough, one half at a time on a lightly floured work surface to a ¼-inch thickness. Cut out the cookies with a Santa shape or your favorite holiday cutter. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  6. Frost with your favorite icing or decorate with sprinkles and candies.

These are wonderful cookies! The eggnog and nutmeg give them a great flavor. They are soft just like I love my sugar cookies. I didn't have a Santa cookie cutter so I guess mine are called Christmas tree cut-outs. I frosted them with "Sugar Cookie Frosting". I also got 3 dozen Christmas tree cut-outs.
