Last year I hosted a holiday cookie swap. It was tons of fun. We didn’t worry about details like how many cookies everyone had to bring. I just had everyone make a batch or two of cookies and then go around the table taking one cookie from each plate until they had roughly the number of cookies they came with. Don’t ask me how but we all ended up with TONS of cookies. It was a great way to add variety to our holiday cookie eating.
I’m hosting another one this year and I wanted to share with you the Egg Nog cookie recipe I used last year and will use this year. It was so good that my husband ignored the amazing selection of cookies we had on hand until he had eaten every last Egg Nog cookie.
Since the original place I found the recipe had taken it from another original source, I linked to her but I’ll also include the recipe in my post. Usually I don’t like to do that unless I’ve changed something but I don’t know the original source so I can’t credit back. This cookie recipe is like the gospels in the Bible. Original source material lost.
We also included these in our homemade gifts to our siblings. My brother CALLED me (mind you, we are texting sort of people) to tell me how good they were. He said, “I opened it and thought it was just a generic Christmas cookie. Then I took a bite and ate half the bag.” Guess who is getting even more this year?
If some of these are coming my way I’m definitely coming to the cookie swap!
Those sound amazing! I might have to try making a gluten free version. Yum.
