Plus, I really wanted to share this recipe with you all because these cookies are phenomenal!! The taste is the perfect combination! Add in the eggnog glaze and these cookies are yummm-ie!!! They’re crunchy around the edges and soft in the middle. They make for the perfect cookie with a nice cup of coffee or tea too. Trust me I know. I had 3 of them yesterday morning for breakfast. 😉
How do you like your cookies baked? Do you like them under cooked, just done or burnt?
I know you’re probably shaking your head at me and thinking, “who likes their cookies burnt? That’s craziness.” Well, let me tell you that it’s not craziness. My mom loves her cookies burnt. She actually prefers them that way. Silly mom, right? I personally go back and forth with how I like my cookies. Some of them I like under cooked such as chocolate chip cookies, but my peanut butter cookies can be done done, so they’re crunchy and yummy!
That’s why these cookies are the perfect combo for me. They’re crunchy around the edges than super soft and fluffy in the middle. The eggnog adds such great flavor too. I’m bummed I didn’t start baking with eggnog sooner. Oh well. Better late then never, right?
