Eggnog Cookies

So in case you can’t tell my cookie theme this year is all about holiday traditions.  I have been thinking about foods we typically associate with Christmas and then making a cookie. These Eggnog Cookies were just too unique in my book to pass up!  I am not a big fan of Egg Nog but these cookies are superb!

    I have to eat gluten and casein free so I can’t tell you how much of a blessing your cookie recipes have been to me. I especially love the Samaroons and the Flourless Fudge Chunk Cookies. I have two questions. You mentioned that the Ghiradelli semi sweet chocolate chips are dairy free. Are they the only ones that are dairy free? Also can these two cookies be frozen? Thank you again.

      Enjoy Life Foods make allergen-free mini choc chips and larger chocolate chunks. They carry them in the natural foods section at grocery stores, or in healthfood stores like Sprouts, Whole Foods, or Trader Joes. They are VERY creamy and chocolatey! Our 4yo DD has mulitple allergies, and these are a God-send! I think they’re better than Tollhouse morsels. 🙂

    I printed the recipe for Eggnog cookies. In the picture it looks like there is frosting on the cookies. There is no mention of frosting in the recipe. Is there a separate recipe for the frosting?
