My 12 Days of Cookies - Day 1

Every year the Food Network features 12 Days of Cookies. If you sign up here you can receive a new cookie recipe in your inbox each day.

Some of them look pretty good and some of them are not my style. This year I decided to do my own version of 12 Days of Cookies. Feel feel to join me in this challenge and make your own 12 cookie recipes (one each day). You can use the logo at the top of this post.

1/2 stick of butter (4 Tablespoons)
1/4 cup eggnog w/alcohol
1 egg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
