I received products from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the Christmas Cookies Week recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
Eggnog Snickerdoodle Cookies combine a holiday favorite drink with the delicious cinnamon and sugar flavors of snickerdoodle cookie. Simple and sweet- it will be too hard to stop at just on cookie!
It is Christmas Cookies Week! I know, I know...before you say, "but we haven't even gotten to Thanksgiving!" remember that 1) Thanksgiving is later this year, and 2) it is never never never too early to get started on deciding what you want to make for holiday baking.
I go to an annual cookie exchange, and I can't wait to share these Eggnog Snickerdoodles with my friends. They are so easy to make, are covered in cinnamon and sugar, and have a touch of the classic holiday eggnog flavor baked into the cookie. As you can see, the little hands in my house absolutely loved them.
So, a little more about Christmas Cookies Week. We are fortunate to be working with to sponsors, Adams Extract and Millican Pecan Company. I ahve worked with both of these companies before, and I can tell you that I was thrilled to use their products again! The products are high quality, and the flavors are wonderful! These two companies are also offering a giveaway for my readers! Check out the details at the bottom of this post.
What do you need to make Eggnog Snickerdoodle Cookies?

What are some of your favorite holiday baking traditions? Like I said, I have a cookie exchange with a few of my girlfriends in December. We sip drinks, eat and exchange cookie, and make a pot a chili to enjoy as we chat and enjoy our sweets. Last year I brought my Easy Peppermint Shortbread and White Chocolate Dipped Gingerbread Cookies, and they where a hit! I am thinking that I might need to make these cookies this year.

Prize 2 - Adams Extract Prize Pack
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams' wife yearned for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out. He announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted. To test this product, his wife whipped up a cake for the family to try. “John, this is the BEST flavoring I have ever used,” she announced. “Well, that’s old man Adams BEST,” he responded.
