I am seriously on an eggnog kick! Can you blame me? There’s one month out of the entire year where the shelves are stocked with eggnog, I’m obsessed, I can’t stop drinking it and using it in my baking! Its just soo good! I drink an Eggnog Cocktail when I’m watching a movie, doing crafts, wrapping presents, making dinner, eating dessert, reading a book, playing with my son…you get the idea, I’m drinking eggnog like its water, like I need it to survive. ha! Seriously though, if you can’t tell, I’m obsessed, I just LOVE IT!!
Which brings me to these delicious eggnog cookies, (which totally happened on accident) but boy am I so glad they did! I was originally going to make some gingerbread cookies, but realized I didn’t have ginger…derr. So I thought for a few minutes, and I was drinking eggnog , a light bulb came on, and boom! The lightest, fluffiest, yummiest, eggnog cookies ever! My parents came over that night, and I’m pretty sure my dad ate half of them, saying every time, “I hope you wrote down this recipe, these are so good and so light!” I guess I know what’s going in his stocking!
Do yourself something sweet and go make these cookies. They are perfect for this time of year, 1) because they’re made with eggnog, 2) while everything this time of year can be heavy, these cookies are so light and fluffy and not overly sweet AT ALL! They’re great…we love them over here, and may or may not have eaten about six each last night…totally did. (While dunking in a glass of eggnog! ha!) So go make these, I hope you enjoy them as much as did!’
