Eggnog…. Hmmmm…. Eggnog bread, eggnog cookies, eggnog cupcakes, eggnog brittle… So many possibilities, where do you start?
Eggnog cookies seemed like the perfect way to kick off this month of cookies! These soft and chewy cookies are sweet, rich and packed with flavor. It tastes like you are drinking a glass of eggnog. From the fresh eggnog to warm cinnamon and nutmeg, you won’t be able to eat just one!
From Halloween to New Years our house has a ready supply of eggnog. Whether it is homemade or some amazing concoction that I picked up at the store. Trust me there is always an eye roll if I see eggnog in my shopping cart in October, but it has happened.
My husband is an eggnog lover through and through (and the one grabbing eggnog in October – LOL) so eggnog cookies were certainly not far from my mind once I started cookie baking. This cookie is literally like eating your eggnog in a cookie. Is a tender, chewy, and perfectly spiced cookie that is bursting with flavor.
I can’t tell you how good they are, you really need to make these for yourself! Enjoy and let us know how it goes! With love from our Simple Kitchen to yours! Check out our Cooking Baking Essentials for all your cookie making tools!
