Holiday Cookie Exchange: Chai Eggnog with RumChata Glaze

Happy Monday and happy National Cookie Day! Woo-hoo! I hope everyone is having a fab month; after an extraordinarily busy and stressful November, I am so ready to slow down and switch to hardcore holiday eating, baking, and shopping mode. We have a week and a half left in the semester (both for the classes I'm teaching and the classes I'm taking) - let me just say that I cannot wait to submit my final paper, finish with grading, and send my students on their merry way (or their not-so-merry way, depending on how many times they claimed a spot on my End of Semester Bingo Board 😆).

After fours years of some really awesome cookies (including the always popular Double Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies and Mexican Hot Chocolate Sugar Cookies), I decided to take a break from the annual food blogger cookie exchange last year. As with this year, I totally overcommitted during November and felt like I simply could not meet yet another deadline; of course, as soon as I saw the cookie posts start trickling in on Instagram, I felt super sad and wished I had participated. I didn't want to be left with major cookie fomo this year, so I made sure to get it together in time to join up and swap some goodies! For this year's exchange, I decided to explore a few of my favorite holiday flavors other than peppermint: chai and eggnog. The chai spices give these soft sugar cookies a kick and they're perfectly balanced by the creamy sweetness of the eggnog. As much as I loved my holiday cookies of the past, I think these are officially the best cookies I've ever made!
