Frosted Eggnog Cookies

This is the season where I perpetually smell like flour, butter, sugar and spice. 
Do you smell cookies?
Yeah, that's just Ruby. 

The things is, I don't always love eggnog- I kind of feel like I'm slurping pudding out of a cup- but anything is better in cookie form. My family even said these were so good they might become a new holiday tradition, which is saying a lot because we take our Christmas traditions pretty seriously. Everything we do, down to the music we listen to, the ornaments we hang, the friends we see, the Christmas breakfast we make, we have been doing it all since before I can even remember. Christmas is my rock among the other crazy fluctuating things in life.

Pumpkin Chocolate Breakfast Cookies

Oh boy. Time seriously flies when you're constantly moving around. After a little under 3 months in Berlin I am finally back home in Minneapolis for the holidays, seeing old friends, working at the restaurant, remembering how to drive on solid ice, and, of course, getting back into baking after a long hiatus.
