Eggnog Square Cookie
It's now February but here I am making another eggnog baked goodies again. The good news is I am down with the last bottle of the holiday flavor. Finally! I am glad all of the seven bottles were put to good use. Instead of the usual panna cotta, I settled on making a cookie. Well it's actually a cross between a cookie and a cake. I was surprised at how fantastic they turned out. I decided to add more eggnog and the extra added flavor made the cookies more flavorful, super soft with cake-like texture. I opted to bake it square for a change and to save time as well. (Not that I am lazy but I had to do double amounts of work before I take my day off)
So if you still have the holiday nog sitting in your fridge, why not make them into these delicious treats.
