    What time of day are you having it?

    Like do you want to go with
    H ordourves` or a brunch or what.

    I have a few ideas for you.

    If you are doing a brunch then some kind of egg casserole served with assorted muffins and a fruit salad would be very nice.

    Hi RRG!
    I'm not sure if you are looking for cookie recipes or snacks.
    I am giving a tried and true cookie recipe that I have made from a Mrs. Field's cookie cookbook. They are delicious and different!

    Eggnog Cookies

    2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    3/4 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup eggnog
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    2 large egg yolks
    1 Tbsp. ground nutmeg

    Preheat oven to 300.
    Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
    In a large bowl cream sugar and butter with an electric mixer to form a grainy paste. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks and beat at medium speed until smooth.
    Add the flour mixture and beat at low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
    Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 1 inch apart.
    Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until bottoms turn light brown. Transfer to cool, flat surface immediately with spatula.

    Yield: 3 dozen

    When I was stationed with some friends years ago, we had a cookie exchange. There were 8 of us. Each person brought a half dozen cookies for each of the others, and a dozen on a platter for the party.

    We served coffee with a variety of creamers and mix in, hot chocolate with peppermint sticks and a variety of tea bags.

    One year, the hostess was especially ambitious and she made a couple desserts for us to enjoy. For me, my favorite part was trying all the different cookies.

    We have one every year and it's usually two or three soups and sandwiches.
