Soft Eggnog Cookies
These eggnog cookies are soft and creamy, but bursting with the aroma and flavor of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Eggnog cookies have such a special place in my heart. I make them every year for my holiday cookie tray, but this year when I have not been baking I have also been going over each and every post on this site. It had been a long process but it has also been fun, albeit slightly embarrassing at times look back.
This recipe for eggnog cookies was my first brush with “going viral”. I had only been blogging for about 10 months at the time, and in all honesty, it showed in the post. The picture was poorly lit, I wrote one paragraph about eggnog and hit the publish button. Somehow, some way it was featured on Yahoo’s Lifestyle interest tab, and a week later it was listed as on of 10 Christmas Cookies To Eat, Give Away, Or Use As Bribes on the Frisky.
So, when I was revisiting this recipe while doing my Christmas baking and cleaning up my website I was surprised that I felt kind of nostalgic about this recipe. Sure, it needed a solid spellcheck and better pictures, but the recipe has stood the test of time. I return to this recipe year after year for my cookie tray and it is always fun to remember sitting in front of my computer watching my Google Analytics blow up and realizing my mother wasn’t my only reader. So after I baked up this year’s batch of Soft Eggnog Cookies, I snapped a few quick pictures and updated the post to try to do the recipe justice.
Why did this recipe do so well with it’s horribly written
I have a suspicion many people have made these over the years. If you are trying them out for the first time I hope you enjoy them! Some of you have told me these have earned a spot on your yearly cookie tray, and I am thrilled that in some teeny tiny way this site and this cookie recipe has become a part of your holiday!
Happy Holidays & God Bless,
