Reviews for Eggnog Cookies
"Cookie was much too sweet, with and without sprinkles or colored sugar. I suggest using less sugar, brush only with egg white and add one cinnamon heart at the center of the cookie to add color. Add the cinnamon heart after 5 minutes, otherwise it will melt."
"Will add just a little more eggnog."
"I loved this was really easy. Half way through we had to put the rest of the dough back in the fridge it was getting to warm. I used half the nutmeg then added 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. They came out prefect"
"Amazing cookies. My friends don't even like eggnog, but they admitted that they do love these cookies. A great change from the usual sugar cookies."
"I thought the nutmeg was overpowering. Couldn't taste the eggnog at all. Should be renamed "nutmeg cookies". Disappointed. Won't make again."
