Egg Nog Cookies

Oh, I am so excited!! Christmas is upon us and I have started my baking... I love this time of year and the chance that it gives me to bake, bake, bake and give it away so that I don't eat it all myself! I am trying a few new cookies again this year and so far, they have all be fabulous!! Here's the first of many recipes! :) These were definitely tasty - especially if you are like me and wait for the egg nog to come out each holiday season! :)
