These Pumpkin Spice Eggnog Cookies are soft and chewy with the perfect blend of Fall and Winter. You are definitely going want to make a batch these for your neighbors and… two batches for yourself! They’re gonna go quick. Promise.
Every year for Halloween we try to dress up as a family. In years past we’ve dressed up like characters from The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan and an Indian tribe. (With so many children, we are definitely a tribe) This year was my favorite though! We were The Incredibles! Yes, we have a few more kids than the original Incredible family, but the results were so fun. The kids were totally into their character as a serious super hero. I didn’t get the memo of the serious face as I am bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in every picture. Haha! Even the our 2-year old was striking her best super hero poses as if she knows what a super hero is… Lol!
I had originally wanted us to dress up as The 5 Little Monkeys. I had pictured my husband dressed as a doctor, myself dressed as a mama monkey and 5 little monkeys with bandages on their little heads, arms and legs like they had fallen off the bed. The kids weren’t hav’n it. They wanted to be The Incredibles. So when my friend Christy, aka The Girl Who Ate Everything, said she had an Elasta Girl costume, I just went with it and it turned out amazing! We had lots of paparazzi taking pictures of us and with us in our neighborhood. We were a definite hit as a family. Next year… I get my way though! Maybe.
One of my favorite cookies during the holidays is an eggnog cookie. I look forward to them every year. When I saw this Pumpkin Spice Eggnog at the grocery store, I knew I had to make a new version of my favorite cookie. When you can’t stop eating the batter, you know the cookie is going to be a good one…and I was right. These cookies are delicious!!! They’re soft and chewy with a simple pumpkin eggnog drizzle on top. I dusted each cookie with a little pumpkin pie spice for a little extra aroma each time you take a bite. YUM! Don’t let this holiday season go by without picking up some of this flavored eggnog so you can recreate these cookies. You’ll be sorry if you don’t!
