iam a egg nog lover but, these cookies just didnt make the grade. Too sweet and not a good flavor. plus made too many cookies and took alot of time to make.

MY REVIEW

These were a HIT!! I was looking for a new recipe that wasn't TOO labor intensive and this fit the bill! I'm heavy-handed with the frosting so I ran a little short on that but otherwise a GREAT recipe that everyone loved!

MY REVIEW

Loved this recipe and the icing (with nutmeg added) really made the cookie sweeter. I baked the cookies as directed. They came out of the oven pale and soft-looking. So I let them sit on the cookie sheet a minute or two before removing to the wire rack. This is neither a crunchy nor chewy cookie. One more note: The recipe made so much dough that I wrapped it tightly in plastic wrap and left some uncooked in the refrigerator for almost two weeks. They still sliced easily, baked well and tasted just as fresh as the first batch. Thanks, TasteofHome!

They tasted okay, but, the cookie was dry and the icing was too soft and couldn't pack them as a gift.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 26, 2013

I added 1/2 tsp. eggnog flavoring (ordered from King Arthur Flour) to the dough and 1/4 tsp. to the frosting, with great results. I agree that it is important to use high quality eggnog and to not overbake. They are still pale when they are done.
