Bacon and Eggnog Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2c flour
  • 1t baking powder
  • 1/2t cinnamon
  • 1/2t nutmeg
  • 1 1/4c sugar
  • 3/4c butter, room temp
  • 1 1/2c eggnog, divided
  • 1t vanilla
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1T nutmeg
  • 1/2lb candied bacon, crumbled

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F and parchment up your cookie sheets. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg and set aside.
  2. Cream together sugar and butter. Add 1/2c eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks and beat.
  3. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed just until combined. Stir in candied bacon.
  4. Roll into 1.5T balls and dunk in remaining 1c eggnog before placing on cookie sheet.
  5. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until bottoms turn light brown. Transfer to cool, flat surface immediately with spatula.

I didn’t dunk the cookies in eggnog before I baked them, but I highly encourage you to take that additional step to give it that extra burst of eggnog-y flavor. These cookies were soft, tasty, and full of bacon and booze: a merry combo for a Merry Christmas. VIA

Strawberry Pancake Pie

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of flower
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 egg
  • Filling:
  • Strawberry’s
  • Custard cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Butter

Put the flower, milk, salt and 1 egg in a large bowl. Mix it very well. It has to be a smooth batter. If it stays thick, add a little milk or water. If it is too liquid, add more flower.

Heat a spoon of butter in a baking pan. Put a large spoon of batter in the pan, until the bottom is covered with a thin layer. If the top gets dry, turn it around. When it is light brown, put it on a plate.

Make six of those pancakes.

Put one pancake on another plate. Cover it with a layer of custard. Put the second pancake on top of that. Cover that one with strawberry’s and whipped cream. Third pancake on top. Again custard, etc…

You finish it with strawberry’s and whipped cream. Maybe you’ll get inspired and decorate it with some powdered sugar, syrup, whatever.

Tada! There’s your pie. via

Look up! Use wire to make a space to store gift wrap rolls against the ceiling, rather than cluttering up the floor. via
