Christmas is 10 days away. 10 days. Does any one else feel like last Christmas was just barely?! I can’t even believe the holidays are here and the end of the year is approaching! CRAZY!
Want to know what else is crazy?! These cookies. As in, CRAZY GOOD!
Lets talk eggnog for a minute. I feel like you either love it or you hate it.
Me? Well when it comes to drinking it- lets just say I am not a big fan. But when it comes to baking with it, well I LOVE the flavor it adds. Is that super weird?
These cookies have eggnog baked into the cookie and mixed in with the frosting, making them burst with holiday flavor in each and every bite! If you are looking for a great holiday cookie to share, this would be a fantastic one to try! If you love eggnog, or maybe you are like me and just like to bake with eggnog, then you are definitely going to want to give these delicious Eggnog Cookies a go!
