These cookies are deliciously soft and chewy. They are delicate and will seriously melt in your mouth. But that frosting. OMG that frosting. Slightly spiced, just a hint of rum. You could (and probably will) eat it with a spoon. These are basically the best Christmas cookie ever.
Egg Nog Cookies with Spiced Rum Frosting
Have you ever used that line “Fashionably Late” to excuse yourself for being super late to a party? Because you know, you are so busy and popular that you are just constantly held up by other important business. Its totally not because you have children who make you late to everything. Or that you lost your keys. Or that you didn’t discover an amazing cookie recipe until literally the day before Christmas. It happened.
I think its time I officially introduce you to the newest member of our family! If you follow me on Instagram you have probably noticed a certain new furry one in our lives. Meet Tonks – our new kitten!
We found her stuck under her our shed right before Thanksgiving. It was entirely not our to initial plan to keep her – we really just wanted to save her from freezing in a blizzard. No one wants a dead kitten under their shed, especially with dogs. But the moment Joel pulled her out, she instantly curled into him and started purring. He melted like a pad of butter in a hot pan.
She was only about 5 weeks old when we found her, so tiny she literally fit in one hand. It has been crazy fun getting used to having a kitten in the house. Crazy because I am pretty much rescuing her from mauling all day long, and fun because – hello, kitten!!! I can’t believe we are now cat people.
