Near the holidays I start looking for all the cookies. There are so many different ones out there and so many different versions. A very popular holiday cookie is the crinkle cookie because it’s made with a boxed cake mix which makes it super easy. While I do like those cookies I always think that a homemade version is ten times better.
That’s where these Eggnog Crackle Cookies come in. While they have a few more ingredients then cake box crackle cookies, these taste way better and are still really easy to make. They have cream cheese in them which makes them soft and delicious. The eggnog flavor comes from an egg, rum, and Adams Best Vanilla.
Before you begin know that these cookies need to be refrigerated for several hours or overnight. I did not read that instruction and had everything ready to bake when I realized I couldn’t bake them until the next day. So make the dough the night before and bake them whenever you have time the next day.
Another tip is about the powdered sugar. While you roll these in powdered sugar before baking I also chose to dust the tops with powdered sugar once they came out as well. These cookies are soft, chewy, and totally taste like sugared eggnog! They are perfect for enjoying around the holidays with a cup of hot cocoa or even a glass of eggnog.

Prize 2 – Adams Extract Prize Pack
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams’ wife yearned for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out. He announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted. To test this product, his wife whipped up a cake for the family to try. “John, this is the BEST flavoring I have ever used,” she announced. “Well, that’s old man Adams BEST,” he responded.
