Last Christmas, I was bemoaning my lack of creativity in my cookie selection for my family. I had made the usual sugar cookies, oatmeal raisin/craisin cookies, and some swirled chip cookies, even some spiced nut bars, but was looking for something different, but still in tune with the holiday season. I asked my hubby for an idea, and much to my surprise he responded with, "What about using Egg Nog?" I was stunned, he hates eggnog (on a good day), but the idea was brilliant. So I searched through 4 cookbooks til I found a recipe I could make the right substitutions on and a new tradition was born - the cookies were a huge hit, and I can't wait to make them again this holiday season - though this time I'm making a double or triple batch.
