I feel like I owe you a big apology!

I’ve published recipes for eggnog fudge, eggnog cupcakes,and even a decadent eggnog cheesecake! But, somehow eggnog cookies fell through the cracks.

I’m so sorry! 🙁

If we were dating I’d send you roses, but let’s face it I’m just a online sugar addict you follow. Let’s make up with these double eggnog cookies? They have eggnog in both the batter, and the frosting.
