It simply wouldn't be Christmas without these melt-in-your-mouth cookies on my platter! They have a lovely eggnog flavor and look great with their crunchy tops. The aroma while they bake is as delectable as their taste.

This cookie has the WOW factor....amazing!

It made 6.5 doz. like it said. The dough was very easy to work with. I didn't have rum extract so i used Bacardi....shhh. it worked just fine. It does resemble egg nog! I'm throwing out my other recipes for snicker doodles....ty 4 sharing!

Tasty cookies and easy to make. However, the yield was only 4.5 dozen - not 6.5 as the recipes says. Therefore, I need to make another batch today to have enough for my cookie exchange!! I used a #50 size scoop to make the balls, which ended up with a cookie that is 2.75" in diameter - a nice, but not over sized cookie. I usually expect it to not make as many as it says it will, but don't expect it to be off by 2 dozen!!

Very good! They turned out great just as the recipe is written. Watch them close in the oven. They are fluffier if you take them out before they really brown around the edges. If need be, leave them on the pan a few minutes before removing to cool.
