These Eggnog Blossoms are a festive twist on the traditional peanut butter blossoms. Soft, chewy eggnog cookies are rolled in sugar and topped with a kiss!
You guys! These cookies are going to be a new tradition in our family. They are SO good, even my eggnog hating husband loved them! The combination of eggnog and chocolate is simply dreamy! One of these cookies fresh from the oven, all melty and warm is impossible to resist!
This was my second attempt at making these cookies. I had my mind set on this idea, and I was determined to make it work. It’s a tricky balance when adding liquids to cookie dough, The first batch, while delicious, was flat, flat, flat. So I got back in the kitchen and with just a couple minor tweaks I achieved exactly what I was hoping for. These are amazing. I hope you give them a try this Christmas season!
