‘Tis the season of eggnog, and I love eggnog just a little bit too much for my own good. I am SO happy to buy that first carton that shows up on the supermarket shelf, but after I have a glass or two I start getting that little annoying voice in my head that reminds me that eggnog is about one million calories a glassful, and that’s before you start eating the Christmas cookies that go along with it.
This cookie is the answer to all of that. It’s a light and delicious little treat with just a hint of eggnog flavor in it (there is only 1/4 cup of eggnog in the whole batch), and those little brown flecks on the top of the cookie? Yep, nutmeg. It’s like having a cup of eggnog AND a Christmas cookie, all in one scrumptious package. Plus they are a snap to make.
AND, if you have any eggnog left over after all that, you can make this.
Except for the recipe, which I snagged from the always fabulous The Cooking Photographer‘s blog – LOVE her.
