I have a very good cinamon cookie recipe. The cookies are very soft, almost the texture of pancakes. One of the ingredients is buttermilk. Could I substitute eggnog for buttermilk? Anyone know what would happen? I'd love the taste of this receipe with eggnog flavor but I don't know what it would do to the texture of the cookie.

I don't have the recipe here with me at work but I'll try to remember to bring it with me Monday and post it in here. I probably won't get to try substituting the eggnog until next weekend b/c I don't have any but I will also post my results!

I guess it depends on what the quantity is.... but buttermilk is very different from egg nog chemically even tho they are similar consistency. Buttermilk is going to react with you leavening where egg nog is not. Don't know whats REALLY in commercial egg nog, but homemade stuff is full of eggs which will alter the cookie. Why nto just use the buttermilk and add a little nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon to mimic egg nog?

It worked. They came out really good! They have a very strong eggnog flavor so you need to like eggnog to appreciate them. Thanks for the tips and well wishesicon_smile.gif
