EggNog Cookies

I wish I could have gotten this post up before the holidays had ended, things around here became quite busy once all our kids got into town, then my desktop died. . . Don't know what happened, but it won't turn on, it's like the button itself is broke. My super nice mommy took me out to get a laptop, I am eternally grateful!

Hopefully you still have some leftover eggnog, if not, I am sure the stores still have some. These cookies are a must try. We all really enjoyed them!!!

EggNog Cookies 

  • 2 cups of your favorite gf flour blend. I used 1 cup sorghum flour and 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. xanthum gum
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter 
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3/4 eggnog (we used ricenog to keep it dairy free, I am sure coconut nog would be just as good too)

Mix dry ingredients together, while continuing to mix add in applesauce, then add in oil, last add in eggnog, slowly, until desired consistency is reached. Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet and bake 350 degrees 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Be careful, it is very easy to over cook these, they still taste yummy, but crumble very easily!

Enjoy! We did!! :)
