According to my sweet Gram, any and all desserts during the month of December could not be consumed without a glass of eggnog. Occasionally, I'd dip one of her perfect sugar cookies in the nog. Now here I am, many years later, continuing Gram's tradition of enjoying my holiday treats with a glass of eggnog. What's even better: making a boozy holiday dessert cocktail with it. Take your favorite eggnog, blend with some sugar cookies and bourbon. I think my Gram would be awfully proud.

Ingredients

Chewy Sugar Cookies:

Directions

Place the ice cream, eggnog, bourbon, nutmeg and 4 Sugar Cookies in a blender and blend until creamy and thick. Pour into 2 tall glasses and top with whipped cream and sprinkles-and an extra cookie on each for garnish!

Chewy Sugar Cookies:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in dry ingredients. Add enough of the buttermilk to moisten the dough and make it soft, not wet.

Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. With a brush or fingers, moisten the top of each cookie with the remaining buttermilk and slightly flatten the top of each cookie. Sprinkle with raw sugar or colored sprinkles.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly golden. Let stand for 2 minutes before removing to cool on a rack.
