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.

"Easy to make. Not fluffy like the photo. Little too crispy for my liking. Nice flavour. Pretty. I would recommend baking them at a lower temperature. That helped to reduce the crispness."

"Absolutely wonderful moist cookies. Turned out perfect for me. The rum and the nutmeg are the best taste combination in this recipe. The kids all want these made now over any other cookie.Thanks for sharing."
