Eggnog Cookies with Eggnog Glaze

GUEST POST: Eggnog Cookies with Eggnog Glaze from Baked Bree

Thank you for including me at your cookie party. I wish that this event was in real life, because there have been some gorgeous cookies so far.

I love eggnog flavored things, but do not love eggnog. Weird, I know. But anything that tastes like eggnog that I don’t have to drink? I am so there. These cookies are so good even my eggnog disliking husband loved them. In fact, his entire office did too. They are crispy on the inside and chewy on the inside.

One thing though, you really need to use fresh nutmeg. It makes a world of difference in the final product. Do yourself a favor and toss the container of ground nutmeg that has probably been sitting in your cabinet from 5 Christmases ago and get whole nutmeg and a microplane. You will be blown away by the difference in flavor. Hope that you have a Happy Holiday!
