Eggnog Cookies

 Hey friends!

I made these eggnog cookies last night to try out the recipe again.  I made them last year, did everything I was supposed to, I thought, and they turned out awful. This time around was a different story. They turned out great!

I will be making many more of these soon! I also have a few other cookies to knock out, and my mind is going nuts with all of the combinations I could make.   From red and green m&ms to white chocolate chips, coco powder for double chocolate chunk cookies with chocolate chunk pieces,  and Andes mints.  And I still want to make more chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies.  I'll see how far I get. :)

Any eggnog fans out there?  I enjoyed a glass last night. #pasteurized  of course.

I love the cold and creamy texture sprinkled with a little nutmeg or cinnamon.  yum. And side note..eggnog is supposed to cool down heartburn. It was humorous last night because I had heartburn but really wanted eggnog. I came across it randomly in a food magazine.  But alas, it didn't quite help and I had to resort to some tums shortly after.

Back to these cookies.  They are full of eggnog flavor and have a wonderful chewy/soft texture to them. They are kind of like pringles; once you pop you can't stop. But please don't 'pop' these cookies in your mouth, or else you'll choke. They are a good size cookie.  

AND they are addicting.

*I only had unsalted butter. Seemed like salted or unsalted didn't make much of a difference. The flavor was still good.
*I added a 1/4 tsp. of salt to the dry ingredients.

You'll want to eat this batter, it's insanely good!  

Make today great!  { one week til' Christmas...huh?? }

Eggnog: take it or leave it?

Share some cookies you're baking for Christmas!  So far I've made sugar, chocolate chip, peanut butter, and eggnog.


  1. I have loved every single recipe I've tried from The Girl Who Ate Everything! I usually don't love eggnog as a drink but I love eggnog flavored treats. I'll have to give these cookies a try.

    1. Thanks so much, Christie! I concur! She has some really great and simple recipes! Also, please pardon the ugly wrench icon tools on my blog. I'm in the midst up upgrading it a smidge.

      Let me know what you think of the cookies if you try them!
