I gave in and bought my first container of eggnog last week. I was trying to hold out until Thanksgiving, but I just couldn’t wait.
I’m not really a fan of drinking it plain, but I love adding it to my coffee and chai.
And, of course, I love to bake with it! Since I haven’t made cookies in awhile, I really wanted to make eggnog cookies.
Soft, pillowy eggnong cookies filled with chai spices and topped with a sweet eggnog buttercream to be exact.
The warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg brings out the eggnog flavor in the cookies, making the traditional holiday drink the main flavor.
The chai spices give these cookies the light flavor of one of my favorite holiday drinks. . .eggnog chai.
I found that I liked these cookies even more the next day because the flavors had a chance to blend (and because I was able to enjoy them with an eggnog chai!). It is perfect for this busy time of year.
You can make these eggnog chai cookies the day before your party or gathering, and they will still be soft and fresh.
One less thing you have to worry about that day!
