12 Days of Treats – Egg Nog Cookies

It’s already Day 10 of The 12 Days of Treats and I’ve got a recipe brimming with holiday cheer!

Egg Nog Cookies may sound like a nightmare to egg nog haters but trust me, I’m not a nog fan and these cookies are AMAZING!  They don’t taste as much like egg nog as just a really soft, tasty cookie that people will be wondering what the ingredient is if you don’t tell them!

These egg nog cookies are a hit with many of our family and friends and I’m betting they will be with yours as well!
