Hey...I only have light egg nog...is that OK? Also, I only have real brandy...if I dropped a sniff of it in would that work? And one more question...the last time snickerdoodles were made in our house...we had hockey pucks (not me!!)...any idea what went wrong?

I don't see how light eggnog would make that big of a difference; it should work just fine. Brandy should also be fine, maybe a tb instead of the 2 ts extract; for those who do not like alcohol, it can always just be left out.

I have found that a big problem with snickerdoodles is over baking them. I think that they should just be barely cooked on the top and still very 'poofy'. If you wait until they are golden on the edges, they will continue to cook inside and then be too hard. You could always post the recipe you used and get some feedback about it.

I think you just added to my Christmas cookie list!
They sound great.
I have to relook over the recipe.
Last time I made Snickerdooles, they called for *cream of tartar* and they weren't very good, that flavor really stood out for some reason.
* oh yeah! no COT

This sounds like the perfect holiday cookie. Snickerdoodles are a favorite and I love eggnog.

If you sneak into the kitchen in the middle of the night, and no one catches you, there are no calories...
