i made eggnog cookies from cake mix. 1/4 cup melted butter, white cake mix and one half cup eggnog. eggnog had nutmeg but didn't it much in dough. i add about half tsp to it. then sprinkled nutmeg on the top. drop on pan. bake 12 to 15 min. at 350, light brown on bottom

i found them just a bit bland, nice texture though . i am thinking i will drizzle a little powder sugar and milk blend and sprinkle with more nutmeg. i hope that helps. all and all nothing to get excited about. maybe a yellow cake mix would be better.

Tomorrow at work we are having a fundraiser to raise money to support local charities. During our monthly safety briefing we are going to raffle off baked goods to earn the money. I made Pumpkin Streusel Bars. I had never made the recipe before. I was going to make cookies, but did not feel like dealing with cookies after working all day. I have not tasted the bars, but they look good.

I'm getting ready to mix a batch of Chocolate Chip Pecan Oatmeal Cookies. I'm taking my granddaugher's advice and adding a tsp of Butter Pecan Extract to the batter. Should taste pretty good.
