I created this cookie recipe because my sons liked eggnog so much. After frosting the cookies, you can add to their festive flair by sprinkling them with colored sugar.

MY REVIEW

LOVE THIS RECIPE! A few years back I found this recipe in an old country woman cookbook. I thought this was a perfect recipe because the family and I love eggnog. Very soft and delicate these cookies are great to set the mood for a perfect Christmas. The only problem i had was the sticky dough. I had to add a little extra flower to make it manageable. I always double the batch because my friends love snatching a few from the cooling rack.

These are really yummy. We love them. But, the dough is very soft and sticky so you have to add a lot of flour when you roll them out.

This is one of my go-to's at Christmas. It makes a lot of cookies, so usually 1 batch does it for my family and friends. Love it!

We make this recipe every year for the past 4 years! We always have to make double b/c the kids (and hubby) sneak them off the cooling rack!
