Thick and chewy gluten free eggnog cookies are the ultimate Christmas cookie! Perfect for gifting and your cookie exchange
3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter
1.5 cups (200g) gluten free all purpose flour blend*
1.25 cups (115g) oat flour**
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (omit if your flour blend already contains xanthan or guar gum)
1 tsp baking soda (bicarb)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
2oz (55g) cream cheese
1.25 packed cups (250g) light brown sugar
1/4 cup (50g) white sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
3 large egg yolks
4 tbsp bourbon***
Make brown butter - put the butter in a small saucepan and heat on medium heat until melted, then heat for a further 5-8 minutes until you see dark brown specks in it and it gives off a nutty aroma. Set aside to cool slightly
Put the flours, xanthan gum (if using), baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
Put the brown butter, cream cheese, and sugars in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment (or use an electric handheld mixer) and beat on a medium speed for 2 minutes.
Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating between each addition. Beat in vanilla and bourbon.
Add the flour, and beat on low until combined.
Cover and chill in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours, preferably overnight
Preheat your oven to 350F/180C. Line a cookie sheet with greaseproof/parchment paper.
Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop 1 inch balls, place 1.5 inches apart on your cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden. Keep cookie dough in fridge while the others bake.
Cool on tray until set, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
Perfect for dunking in eggnog!

**Please ensure your oats are certified gluten free
