What do you do with an eggnog you have left over? Of course you use it for baking. Granted, I am not a big eggnog drinking fan. I prefer my mulled wine for Christmas. But we bought a carton last year and froze it. The other day I defrosted it and even thought it was a bit runny due to the freezing process and good stir made it into a nice eggnog again. This recipe comes from Sweet Art Supplies who found it on Knead to Cook.

The final product. A little dry but still tasty.
Since we are pretty much through with the Christmas Cookies I’ll give you another great Christmas recipe: Stollen (or as my family says Stolle). This is a Christmas cake so to speak made from a yeast dough. I guess it is similar to fruit cake, but not. I think Stollen is a thing by it’s own and can’t really be compared to anything else. Like Strudel, you can’t compare that to anything else either. This recipe comes from mother, like so many others, and I would assume it was handed down from grandma.
Interestingly, I don’t recall anyone ever making it. Most of the time we bought our Stollen from the bakery. By now you probably know that I don’t like raisins which means Stollen is not really the thing for me. However, there are other options, like Nougat Stollen or Poppy seed Stollen (not that I like poppy seed but for those who do this is great). This year of course I had to try it and make my own. See the results after the “Read the rest”.
