My eggnog drinking experience reminds me of the “Three Bears” story — one is too sweet, one is too rich, and the other one is devoid of any warm notes of spice. Until making eggnog myself, I hadn't found one that was “just right.” The search for a seasonal jug of cheer was difficult, in ...

Out of all the cookies you could possibly make, sugar cookies say Christmas best of all.
