Make Santa Happy with this Easy Spiced Rum Cookie Recipe

The Holidays are here and the smell of baked goods and spices fill the air. Our house is no different. And I’m pretty sure I can say I’m not the only one who looks forward to the seasonal varieties of creamers to pop up on the shelves to make my mornings festive. While I use flavored creamers in my coffee every morning, it never occurred to me to try and use them in a recipe. That is, until I was recently asked to give one of Coffee-Mate’s new seasonal flavors a try.


Just smelling the Spiced Latte from the bottle had me thinking of cookies. Apparently, the folks over at Coffee-Mate thought the same and came up with this Spiced Latte Ginger Sandwich Cookie Recipe. Inspired, I tweaked this recipe just a little to come up with a holiday treat just for adults. M real alcohol spiked Spiced Rum Cookies are quick and easy to make and sure to be a hit with party guests or Santa.
