Oh hey bloggy friends! It’s been too long, hasn’t it?
The holiday season is the perfect time to make happy food. It’s a time to momentarily forget our diets, stop counting the calories, and just sit back and enjoy some yummy comfort food. For me- that kind of food is dessert! And my favorite dessert has to be cookies 🙂
This is the second year I’ve participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, and I cannot wait to tell you about the delicious cookies I made! Here’s how it works: I whip up a huge batch of cookies and send a dozen to three different bloggers that I am assigned to. The best part… three different bloggers send ME a dozen cookies each! It’s such a fun way to try new recipes and share with friends in the holiday spirit.
Today, I’m going to share the recipe I made with you. I have been dying to try this creative semi-homemade recipe from Southern Living for a few years now. I left out the glaze topping in the hopes that they would be better for shipping to my FB Cookie Swap friends… and they turned out so fabulous! I know it sounds a little strange at first, but the flavors are amazing. The eggnog keeps the cookies unbelievably moist. These are the perfect addition to your holiday cookies repertoire!
