Perfectly spiced, soft cookies with a fluffy frosting, all with the holiday taste of eggnog.
The holidays. Nothing beats the flavors, am I right? From Thanksgiving through New Year’s we typically eat special meals and treats that we don’t get throughout the rest of the year. I love the baking most. I make many pies around Thanksgiving, and then immediately make my list for what I plan to put on my holiday cookie and candy platters.
Sure — everyone has their favorite, and those are added first. Every year, though, I like to try some new recipes, and if I am lucky, they become traditional cookies in the years to come. Like these.
My family adores eggnog. The minute it hits the shelves I am buying it as a staple. This year, we decided to try the Traditional Nog from Silk.
We drink Silk products regularly. My daughter and husband especially love their Cashew Milk. My hubby was a huge milk drinker as a kid, but over the last decade or so, he’s been unable to drink it. He missed his morning bowl of cereal something awful, and was so happy the first time I brought home a carton of Silk.
This year, ring in the season with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon, and the smooth velvety flavor of Silk Nog. No need to feel naughty, because it’s made without eggs, dairy or saturated fat. Silk Holiday Nogs have 80 calories or less per serving. It is a delicious yet dairy free seasonal nog! This year Silk expanded their seasonal holiday line-up with two new Almond Nogs: Silk Soy Nog Original, Silk Almond Nog Pumpkin Spice and Silk Almond Nog Original.
I had been wanting to try this recipe for sometime, and I decided this was the perfect excuse! We were delighted with these cookies. I mean look at how soft they are! Like tiny little cakes with a fluffy frosting that will having you wanting another. I substituted the traditional eggnog in the recipe, and used Silk Nog. The cookies and the frosting were perfection.
