Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls

Because when you love eggnog, you need to put it in all the things. Like Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls: eggnog in the dough and in the glaze.

Time to get eggnoggy up in here!

Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls made with eggnog in the dough and in the glaze! The perfect breakfast for Christmas morning.

I really love Amazon Prime, and kind of in a sadistic way. I kind of want to see how many times the UPS guy can come to my house between now and Christmas without blowing a gasket. I’m not the only one who has felt like doing this, am I?

Last week I realized I needed a cord to connect my computer to the TV because Scandal didn’t tape and ohemgee that’s, like, a major #firstworldproblem. 5 minutes later I’d one-click ordered my cord on Amazon with only 2 days to wait.

The next day I decided I needed a Swiffer Steam Mop. Click.

Then I ordered some Christmas gifts. Click.

And so on.

I think I’m going to need to leave the UPS guy something nice on the porch. Maybe some cinnamon rolls?

Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls made with eggnog in the dough and in the glaze! The perfect breakfast for Christmas morning.

The one thing I do wish I could order on Amazon that’s not available? Mini containers of eggnog. When we lived in Arizona the local dairy (Shamrock Farms, I think?) sold little single serve eggnogs at the grocery stores. Those were perfect for me. I’m the only one in my family that loves this holiday drink, and a full carton always goes bad before I drink it all.

Honestly, I only ever really want one glass a season. That’s it. One glass usually curbs my craving…but the smallest ones they sell here are quarts, and that’s too much for me.

Unless you bake with the eggnog. *lightbulb moment*

I’ve only made one eggnog recipe on this blog, a pie. It was time to change that. So I made cinnamon rolls. With eggnog. In the yeasted dough.

They looked like this:

Oh. My. Goodness. THIS PIE! It’s like the trinity of decadent desserts: caramel, brownie…and potato chips! You haven’t eaten a RUFFLES® Original Potato Chip until you’ve tried it on top of a Caramel Brownie Pie. You know what TV show I miss the most? Friends. I know it’s still on TBS or one of those...

Homemade Sugar Cookie Mix

Sugar Cookie Mix (9 of 11)

Why buy a mix when you can make your own? Keep this in your cabinet for sugar cookie emergencies, or give it as a gift for the holidays! Plus, the mix has sprinkles. #winning It’s finally cold here in Sacramento. The heat kept kind of hanging on (it was high 70s/low 80s last weekend)...

Pecan Pie Baklava

Pecan Pie Baklava (9 of 9)w

Yes, you read that right. I took pecan pie and turned it into baklava. {Your yoga pants love me right now, don’t they?} Last week Jordan told me she was hoping Santa would bring her another American Girl Doll for Christmas this year. {Yes, another. He’s been very generous and brought a bitty baby...
