  1. They look delicious!  What could I substitute for bourbon?  

    • Vanilla. If you want to use bourbon for the flavor, but don’t want purchase an entire bottle, you can usually purchase what I call “flight size” at the customer service desk or your local gas station. Enjoy!

  2. Julie, I will be making these for my husband! He LOVES eggnog and will devour these cookies!!

  3. I love eggnog and I love cookies. Perfection!

  4. Yay cookies!

  5. These look soooo good, Julie! Can’t wait to try them!
    Hugs, Jamie
