I cannot believe Christmas is only a little over a week away. At 33 weeks pregnant, I’m making every attempt to keep up with holiday traditions, but this girl is tired and pretty much waddling through the month of December.
One tradition that I won’t deviate from is making a huge assortment of Christmas cookies to take home for the holidays. From Peanut Butter Blossoms to Snowball Cookies, I’m working my way through family favorites, one dozen at a time. I'm also eyeing up this Red Velvet Cookies Recipe from Rachel.
Although I have never been very fond of eggnog, I purchased 2 cartons of it last week. I’m fairly certain the holiday flavors and festive packaging sucked me right in. And since there was no way I was actually going to drink the stuff, I decided to bake up something delicious. First up on the eggnog baking list were eggnog cookies.
Eggnog cookies are loaded with warm, winter spices, baked until golden brown, and then dipped in delicious eggnog glaze. The texture of these eggnog cookies is almost cake-like when they’re fresh out of the oven. I found myself repeatedly sneaking into the kitchen to do a little quality control, if you get me.
After allowing the cookies to cool completely, they take on a heartier texture. While I’d happily nosh on the unglazed version, the eggnog glaze definitely puts them over the top. They’re perfect with a cup of tea in front of a cozy fire and although their appearance in quite unassuming, they’ll definitely be a fave on any cookie platter.
I wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons – eat, drink, and be merry!
