Soft and Chewy Holidays Cookies Made with Real Eggnog
Now, before we go even one step further let me tell you that you do not have to be an Eggnog fan to love these cookies. No, not at all.
In fact, I actually dislike eggnog in it’s natural form… but, these cookies are absolutely delicious.
When I set out to make these, I was creating the recipe for my husband. I had NO intention of eating half a dozen myself. (Don’t tell anyone.)
I really didn’t expect to love them so much! When I say melt in your mouth, they seriously do.
I love to bake but at Christmas the urge hits me more than ever. Is it the same for you? I love to spend time in the kitchen making sweet treats. Plus any time I can get my kids in their to help is extra special. So many special memories are made in the kitchen.
