I am completely engulfed in the Christmas spirit this year. Do you ever have years where you are just not that into it? That was last year. No reason. Just didn’t “feel” like Christmas.
I am ALL about it this year! I have all of the presents bought, they just need wrapping. The decorations are up and I discovered a wonderful thing at the grocery store last year thanks to one of my favorite bloggers Tara. Silk and So Delicious make dairy free eggnog and it is absolutely delicious. I tried it last year and fell in love. I even made her Eggnog muffins which are awesome!
So I knew this year I had to make something else with their eggnog. I decided on cookies. Especially since Santa is coming to town and many of you go to cookie exchanges. These would be perfect to give as a gift in a festive tin as well. Or you can just hoard them to yourself…no one’s judging.
Oatmeal cookies are definitely on the top of my list of favorite cookie types. What is your favorite cookie type?
Rolled oats are blended with eggnog, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cloves to develop the ultimate Christmas cookie just in time for the holidays. Seriously, this cookie tastes like Christmas. It’s magic. Make them, try them, eat them, and love them.
