I made these last night for a cookie tray. They smelled wonderful as they were baking. I doubled the nutmeg to give them a little more flavor. As is, I would give the recipe 3 stars, but I added a eggnog frosting to help them taste like eggnog (not just a sugar cookie) which bumped them up to 4 stars. Eggnog Frosting: 1/2 cup butter (beat until fluffly), beat with 3 c. powdered sugar, add 1/2 tsp. brandy extract and 4 TBSP. eggnog, beat an additional 2 min. *I added a few drops of yellow food coloring to the frosting to give it the look of eggnog. Overall, the cookie was good, but don't expect amazing.


I made a couple batches of these last Christmas, and people really loved them! I plan to make them again this year, however, I double the nutmeg and sprinkle extra nutmeg on when I bake them - makes for a more "eggnogy" flavor...otherwise, they taste a little like plain (but good) sugar cookies.


I was looking for a different kind of cookie to make this Christmas and I saw this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. I had my toughest critic taste it, my husband and he loved them. I thought they were easy to make and taste great. Leslie73
