Eggnog Kringla

Eggnog Kringla	Opens photo in lightbox. Hit Escape or X to exit lightbox.

Makes about 60

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 cup butter (do not use margarine)
1-1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup dairy or nondairy eggnog
sifted powder sugar
ground nutmeg

In large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, cream butter, about 30 seconds. Add the sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and mix well. Add the flour mix and eggnog alternately to the sugar/butter mix. Cover and chill at least 4 hours. Dough may still be sticky but it is a soft dough.

Preheat oven to 350F. Take out half the dough at a time (leaving rest in the fridge). On a lightly floured surface, take one tablespoon of the dough and roll into a rope shape (about 1/2 inch thick and 8 inches long) On an ungreased cookie sheet, place the rope in a loop, cross one end over the other. Make the shape slightly oval. Bake 6 to 8 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Remove cookies and cool on wire rack. While still warm, sprinkle tops with powdered sugar and nutmeg.

Would make this again.
I found this recipe last year and made them on Christmas Eve Morning..they were fabulous and a HUGE hit. I'm whipping up a batch of dough to chill overnight in the fridge to make with the kiddos again tomorrow morning! Merry Christmas everyone! :-) 5 stars

Never again. For the amount of time it took to roll and twist these out they are not worth it. No flavor. Not a good taste in my opinion. 6 to 8 minutes is not long enough to bake. 1 star

I hate to be the grinch, but this cookie dough was horrible- I had to add so much extra flour that it was ridiculous. The dough was so wet and very very hard to work with. Never Again-SORRY!!! 1 star
