Eggnog Cookies

Who loves eggnog?!

I do! It’s a holiday staple, and I love that you can use it for things other than just drinking. Yes. It’s true. You can even use it for baking!! How awesome is that?! I used it in today’s recipe for Eggnog cookies. The result was a soft and chewy cookie with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar and eggnog. Yes – they were delicious! The Eggnog glaze on top was the perfect addition. It made them just sweet enough but not too rich and makes for another great holiday cookie recipe to try this year.

Well, if you guys know me at all you won’t be surprised to learn that I didn’t stop at just making cookies. I was asked by Horizon Organic to make a simple and fun gift idea this holiday season and decided to use these cookies and a Cookie Jar I found at my local Kroger Store for it. I mean, who would give a Cookie Jar for a gift without cookies, right?! I made this batch and then filled the jar with them. I even decided to make a little poem and turned it into a tag that reminded the recipient of the true reason for this amazing season. This is how the gift turned out:

I LOVE how it turned out. It’s simple. It’s festive. And it’s meaningful. 😀

Oh yes, and it only took 5 minutes to turn these cookies into a great gift idea. Sweet!! (LITERALLY!!)
