I chose this recipe because it uses twice as much eggnog as all the others! I didn't really read the whole thing until I started making it and that is when I realized there are NO spices in this recipe...NO flavor!! So, as I often do, I modified it....I added 1 tsp of cinn and 1 tsp of nutmeg...also 1 tsp vanilla...and I used only 2 3/4 cups of flour. I haven't iced any of them yet since I just took them out of the oven...but they are great! Sorry to the person who posted this recipe...I just thought that without spices they would be too bland!!


A great fluffy cookie that's not too sweet! My Father in Law loves these cookies! I make them every year for him. I like to add a little rum or rum extract just to the icing, and then sprinkle the tops with a pinch of nutmeg. It just adds that little bit of authentic eggnog flavour, and makes them a bit prettier for my Holiday platters!


This is the first time I ever threw out a batter after making one batch. It tasted like flour and that was about it. The texture was poor and the taste was really bad. The kids and I hated them. I think the recipe must be off in the amount of flour used. Denise
