Eggnog Cookies


Rompope cookies

Yesterday I wrote about rompope, that Mexican eggnog-like drink that is very popular this time of the year, and I posted a recipe to make a deliciuos hot drink with it called atole. But there are many other things that can me made with rompope (and any other eggnog, as a matter of fact) and this being the season of cookies I really wanted to make some rompope cookies.

I searched online for a rompope cookies recipe, but I didn’t find much so I broadened my search to eggnog cookies and I found a lot of recipes. I took a little bit from several of them to make these cookies. Hands down, this has been the best cookie recipe I have tasted this year, and maybe in many years. Maybe it’s just my love for rompope and it’s alcoholic content, or that I used peanut butter and chocolate chips, or just the sum of all of the ingredients that made them so delicious. Whatever it was, here I share the recipe with you:
