I’m back….with another delicious eggnog recipe! I love this stuff, and love that I can use it to make other things than just a drink! These are our Homemade Eggnog Cookies and they have eggnog flavored icing! I love these cookies and could probably eat them all by myself. But this year I think I will take them to our family Christmas gathering so that I can share them. You could also put them in some cute packaging and give them as a gift. We always take desserts up to the school for the teachers and this may be my go to cookie for this year!
