    Here you go-


    Eggnog Cookies

    1/2 c crisco
    1/2 c butter
    2 c sugar
    1 c eggnog
    1/2 Tbsp nutmeg
    1 Tbsp baking soda
    5 1/2 c all purpose flour
    extra flour to help with rolling
    egg white
    colored sugars for decorating
    red hots for decorating

    Cream crisco, butter and sugar. Add the eggnog, nutmeg and baking soda. Add flour in slowly. About halfway through the flour you will want to switch to a dough hook. When it gets to the point it's not sticky, start working it by hand. Pat out flat and roll out on floured surface to about 1/4" thick. Cut out. Brush with egg white. Decorate.

    Bake at 375 deg for 6-8 minutes.

    Enjoy!

    Here is one for soft Sugar Cookies..

    Ingredients:
    3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup margarine, softened
    1 1/2 cups white sugar
    2 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Directions:
    Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together, set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Gradually blend in the sifted ingredients until fully absorbed. Cover dough, and chill for 2 hours.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. On a clean floured surface, roll out small portions of chilled dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes using cookie cutters.
    Bake 6 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are barely brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks...
