Recipe by ShaGun
READY IN: 51mins
YIELD: 60 cookies




  • In a bowl combine flour, baking powder and soda, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl beat butter and sugar till fluffy. Add egg and beat well.
  • 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.
  • Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
  • To make them quickly, drop them by small spoonfuls on a baking sheet. To make them in the traditional manner: 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 a baking sheet loop one end over the other to form an oval with two ends overlapping (to look like the Christian fish).
  • Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes before edges brown. They won't look done, but they are.
  • Sprinkle with nutmeg and powdered sugar.
