The Most Delicious Eggnog Cookies Ever

When it comes to winter time and Christmas season one of my favorite holiday festivities is egg nog. I could down an entire carton in one sitting if I allowed myself. I seriously love it so much. My husband isn’t a fan of it so I never had to share before. But our four boys have all decided that they love it just as much as I do. So I knew I needed to get creative and create some fun ways for us to enjoy it. Make sure to check out my egg on hot chocolate recipe if you are an eggnog lover!

So onto this very easy recipe that your absolutely going to love! Just make sure to not over cook them.

  • 1/2 cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
