The day before Thanksgiving and I’m talking Christmas cookies. Some of you might shake your head and think I’m crazy. I’m not going to argue with you there. Sometimes I say that about me too. I just remembered that, since tomorrow it’s Thanksgiving, there won’t be any 12 weeks to Christmas round-up and I have to write it today. Since there’s no time to lose I’ll keep things simple. Simple, just like these cookies. They’s no fuss, no mess in making these. But the flavors, oh the flavors. The eggnog is added both to the cookie dough and in the Nutella cream. Heaven! They remind me of some sandwich cookies we used to get from the local bakery when I was a kid. I skipped the drizzle of ganache on top, but you can certainly do that if you prefer. The cookies are soft and a little on the chewy side, with lightly crispy edges. Than, when cooled they are sandwiched with nutella mixed with eggnog and that’s when the addiction starts.

The cookies were slightly adapted from Better Homes and Garden The ultimate cookie book. There are lots of great treats in this book, in fact I’m planning on making some more cookies from it later today.

    The cookies are great but when I put the eggnog in the Nutella, it thicken and was not spreadable. What do you think I did wrong.
