Real Old Fashioned EggNog

Linda Kauppinen


My family has always made their own Eggnog for the Christmas Holiday for as long as I can remember. Its creamy, delicious and tastes better than the store bought kind in my opinion!
The original recipe actually came out of the Betty Crocker Cookbook from 1956.
