A Christmas-time spin on one of my favorite types of cookies!
A little-known personal fact…I’m actually terrified of drinking eggnog, I can’t get over the raw egg, and the texture, but I do absolutely love the flavor combination found in Eggnog.
So, I was super excited to come upon a delicious cookie recipe that had those yummy flavors!
