Gluten-Free Eggnog Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

I've enjoyed more than a few sugar cookies in my day. My nanny made the most amazing sugary, buttery Christmas cookies that I can recall inhaling when I was 5 years old. In my mind, it doesn't get much better than a simple sugar cookie dipped into some chocolate hazelnut butter.

But gluten-free sugar cookies? Without that buttery-yucky taste? You want it. You got it.

Ingredients

  • 2  Cups  all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1  Teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  sea salt
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  cinnamon, preferably organic
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  nutmeg, preferably organic
  • 1/2  Cup  vegan butter sticks, softened
  • 1  Cup  sugar
  • Egg substitute for 1 large egg
  • 2  Teaspoons  vanilla extract
  • 1/4  Cup  dairy-free eggnog

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar until creamy, then add the egg substitute, vanilla extract, and eggnog. Mix well.

Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix well. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop the dough into balls. Place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes.

Eggnog Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Eggnog Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
