Eggnog Snickerdoodles Recipe

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.

"These cookies are delicious.

I made them at Christmastime; but my family enjoys them so much that I make them all the time."

"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."

"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."

"I make these every year for Christmas, but instead of rolling the dough balls into plain white sugar and nutmeg, I mix the nutmeg with green and red sugar. Makes them look extra special for the holidays!"

"I had baked these cookies before and they were great. This time when I baked them I omitted the rum extract and used 1/2 tsp. eggnog flavor and added the nutmeg into the dough instead of with the sugar to roll the cookies in. These cookies have the most amazing eggnog flavor, they are pretty and I will keep making them."

"reply to enonwosdog- My mother-in-law taught me an important lesson about cookie making. Dry,tough or hard cookies- too much flour was used so cut back a little. Flat or greasy cookies- too little flour was used so add a little extra. Bake a couple of "test cookies" until you have the cookie texture you desire. All flour is not the same and can vary from brand to brand, affecting the success of a recipe."
