I know, I know… EggNog Cookies? I am sure some people are gagging at the thought right now. It seems that people either LOVE eggnog or HATE eggnog. I am one of those that loves it!
But I will say this about these delicious cookies – They taste creamy and practically melt in your mouth but they don’t really taste like eggnog.
Yesterday I shared about attending a cookie party over the past weekend and the S’mores Cookies I made for the exchange. After browsing Pinterest I also found these eggnog cookies that I wanted to give a try. I understand that they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I thought they were delicious!
I found the recipe over on Coupon Cravings and I was super excited to make them. Since I am always up for making something new and I think these will be a regular Christmas cookie that I will make again each year!
They seemed to be a hit as they tasted a little more like a sugar cookie with nutmeg and a hint of eggnog. And it made a pretty huge batch. I had plenty to take to the cookie exchange and more than enough for home!!
