"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."

"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."

"My 13-year-old son made these all by himself. The dough was easy to work with and produced sturdy, but tender cookies despite all of the handling--perfect for all methods of cookie decorating."

"My mom received this recipe in a 1990's version of Taste of Home and we have been making them ever since. Everyone looks forward to a box of eggnog cookies from us during the holidays! I can't encourage someone to bake these enough!!!"
