Soft Batch Peanut Butter Eggnog Cookies

If you’re like me…please be like me!  Peanut butter cookies are an all time favorite.  I can think of tons of variations with peanut butter and for the holidays eggnog makes the most perfect addition.

Don’t ya think?

I’m from Texas, ya’ll.  We say ya’ll and fix’en. Please don’t hold that against me!


And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better they are filled with a creamy eggnog filling. T

You’re going to want to indulge in these.  I love them when they are right out of the oven still warm and oh so soft.

Peanut Butter Eggnog Cookies

For the creamy eggnog filling combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and eggnog. Place about a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place them in the freezer.

After they are frozen you will wrap your cookie dough around each one of them forming the cookie dough into balls, roll in cinnamon and sugar and bake.

These are a must have for your holidays!
