With Christmas coming up, seasonal drinks, baking items, and the traditions that go along with the holiday are in full swing! One of those seasonal drinks that is just about everywhere is eggnog. Confession...I actually don’t really like the stuff without it being “watered” down with milk. (Yay for MilkNog!) I love to bake with it though!Let’s just say that with the eggnog and gingersnap combination, your house will smell amazing while these are baking making it very hard to wait the 20 short minutes for them to finish! These muffins stay tender and fresh the next day, lending themselves as great presents or additions to your next holiday gathering! For more recipes like this visit A Kitchen Addiction.
