Favorite oatmeal cookies
This cookie recipe is based on my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe. It’s the one my mom always made when I was a kid.
In fact, it’s still one of my favorite cookies!
Make it festive
So I decided to make it festive and give it an eggnog twist!
You can see the plain eggnog cookies in the picture below.
Or, make them even fancier by adding the eggnog drizzle on top.

- In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, salt, and baking soda, and mix well. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and mix well.
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or Silpats.
- Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
