This is a recent addition in my recipe library. All the recipes I've posted on here are my own creations, and tis is certainly no exception. This one, I will admit, my husband co-authored.....and he hates egg nog. Let me explain: last year I was having a bit of a mental block on what to introduce as my new recipe of the year - I do this every Christmas. I did my usual, pacing, muttering, griping.....while my DH merely watches with a raised eyebrow. He then says, "Why not do something with egg nog?" I stare at him likes he's grown a third head. Ever sarcastic, I immediately thought, I do something with eggnog - I drink it!
"Why not make eggnog cookies?" Cuts through the thousands of sarcastic comments flying around in my head. And finally.....light begins to dawn on me. I jump up, kiss DH - briefly exclaim that he's brilliant (which naturally he knows), then I'm off to create this newest cookie in my arsenal of Christmas creations. So, without further ado:

EggNog Crunch Cookies

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1/3 C. eggnog
1 egg
1/4 tsp. rum extract
1/4 C. margarine, softened
1/2 C. white chocolate chips
1 C. walnuts, chopped
Nutmeg (to dust the tops of the cookies)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheet(s).
Mix well all ingredients except chips and nuts. Stir in the chips and nuts til just blended. Dough will be soft. Drop by spoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Dust with nutmeg.
Bake 10-12 minutes, til lightly golden. Cool on cookie sheet, remove once cooled. Store in airtight container.
Yield: 3-4 dozen cookies.
