Holiday Eggnog Cookies – Paleo – Nut and Egg Free


Delicious Paleo Eggnog Cookies (1)

I started loving Eggnog when I was around 12. It seems to me that either you love eggnog, or you hate it. I think maybe it has something to do with the nutmeg, but I’m really not sure why. To me it is a creamy delicious holiday drink to be partaken of while decorating the tree or on Christmas Eve hopefully spiked with rum. 🙂

Here is a recipe for Eggnog Cookies that you can make quite easily. They are pretty, and there is no piping involved, so you can leave your decorating bag in the cupboard for another time. I used mace when making these cookies. Mace is the lacy outside of the nutmeg shell, and nutmeg is the seed inside. Mace is slightly more pungent than nutmeg, and both work beautifully in this cookie, so use what you like.

These cookies are grain, dairy, egg and nut free, and a great cookie to make when you have friends and family with food sensitivities and allergies like myself.

Holiday Eggnog Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350Âş degrees F. Lay out a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour

1/4 Cup of Coconut Butter

1/4 Cup of Maple Syrup

1/4 Cup of Olive Oil

3/4 Cup of Full Fat Coconut Milk

1 Tablespoon of Gelatin (I use this kind)

1 Tablespoon of White Rum

1 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Mace or Nutmeg

16 Teaspoons of  Coconut Butter for the Thumbprints after baking.

Directions:

Whisk together the Coconut Flour, Baking Soda, Sea Salt, Mace and Gelatin in a mixing  bowl. In another medium microwave safe bowl, add the coconut butter, maple syrup, olive oil, vanilla and rum. Warm the liquid mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds, then with a hand held electric mixer, beat until smooth and creamy. If the coconut butter isn’t softened enough, microwave another 30 seconds. Add the liquid mixture to the dry and beat with your electric mixture until you get a soft crumb consistency. This next step will activate the gelatin and make a natural egg replacement. Place the coconut milk in a microwave safe glass measure. Microwave to a boil, but be careful not to boil it over. This is different depending on the power of your microwave, but about one minute to one minute thirty seconds. You can also do this on your stove top. Now with your mixer running, pour in the coconut milk, beating as you go until the milk is all incorporated, and you have a nice dough. With a tablespoon scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto your parchment lined cookie sheet. Press a thumbprint into the center of each cookie, and bake for 9 to 10 minutes until just turning golden brown on the edges. Remove from the oven. Melt 16 teaspoons of Coconut Butter in the microwave, and with a teaspoon, pour the coconut butter one teaspoon each into the indentations of the cookies while they are still warm. Sprinkle with a little additional mace or nutmeg. Cool completely.
