Cookies yet again

I made some eggnog cookies this weekend. They are from the "Butterscotch Eggnog Stars" recipe but since they have neither butterscotch nor star-shapes I renamed them. I tried to get the link but apparently you need a code to get to that part of the site. I would bet there are a lot of eggnog cookie recipes on line, though!

The goat, horse and dove cookie cutters came from a local thrift store years ago. I want to set them apart from my sugar cookies so I plan to ice them rather than using colored sugar. I think they'll look cute, but right now they're in the freezer.

I hope to get several more kinds of cookies done this week. I was going to make toffee yesterday but my daughter still has my 9x13 pan. It had lasagna in it, a gift for my future s-i-l. I have to call her so she can bring it by before work today. She goes in at 1. At least I already have my ingredients mixed and ready to go!

Christmas is less than 2 weeks away...aaaggh!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog....ain't GRANNY amazing?! She is quite a wonder! So nice to meet you! Yes, the kids get excited choosing tonight's dinner every morning, lol! Stay in touch, ok?

  2. It's hard to believe that Christmas is less than two weeks away -- and those days will go fast.

    I love the little toy grocery bag idea from your previous post. That will make a little very happy!

  3. Eggnog cookies sound great! I may have to do a search for a recipe.

  4. You have been so busy this Christmas season! I haven't made any cookies, but my hubby made some from the slice and bake rolls! Maybe I'll get some done before Christmas. I usually make roasted pecans, but the trees haven't produced much this year. Must have been a late frost last spring that killed the blossoms.
