Eggnog pancakes with creamy eggnog-cream cheese drizzle are totally drool-worthy

Pancakes are the perfect way to start the day. Even on Christmas. Usually I like to keep things light on holiday mornings because the day is always filled with food. However, when I married my husband, I learned his family does things the opposite way. They go big for breakfast and small the rest of the day.

That’s why when I came up with these pancakes, I knew they would be perfect for his family’s holiday breakfast extravaganza. Warm nutmeg-scented pancakes topped with a creamy cream cheese-eggnog sauce? How can anyone not fall in love with these holiday flapjacks?
