My Grandma Mary made the best Eggnog at Christmas time. It was thick, creamy and delicious. I always looked forward to her eggnog and Christmas cookies. She would make a huge batch of sugar cookies, always sprinkled them with sugar and cinnamon. I can almost taste them just thinking about them! I really miss my Grandma. I wonder if she knows how much we talk about and think about her cooking, her “yummy stuff” as my sisters and I call it (or Grandmas macaroni as some of the family calls it), her taquitos, her beans and rice, her eggnog… the list can go on and on. I made this eggnog tres leches cake in honor of my Grandma and her famous eggnog. I hope it tastes at least half as good as hers!
What is Christmas without candy canes? Candy Canes are essential to Christmas! I remember one of the best parts of Christmas was getting a huge candy cane from my Aunt Jenni along with a new Christmas coloring book. She would give them to us every year and my sisters and I looked forward to it! They were the big candy canes, a big delicious stick of peppermint. We would get them all over our faces as kids and would enjoy every last drop Making this cake brought back those happy memories of those candy canes from my Aunt Jenni.
