Double Whammy Eggnog Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling
Just ok for me. Wanted to try something different to add to my Christmas cookie selection. Couldn’t really taste the eggnog as much as I expected.
Can you use dark rum instead of rum extract?
Excellent! I made the recipe as written. The cookies were very moist as for the frosting I'm going to try removing 1TBS. Of eggnog and replacing it with 1 TBS. of rum.
Great egg nog flavor from just a small amount of egg nog. Love the fresh grated nutmeg on top.
These cookies bake up well, look pretty and taste great. They were a favorite this Christmas.
These were definitely the hit of the Christman cookie tray! I do suggest to cut the amount of rum extract to 1/2- to 1 teaspoon for the full recipe of frosting. Also, this is just way too much frosting for the number of cookies. You can cut the amount of frosting you make in half & still have plenty of it too.
The frosting really makes these cookies, without it, they are kind of bland. I used vanilla rather than rum extract since that was all I had. The frosting recipe made way too much. To make these even more Christmasy, we put a holiday shaped chocolate that we made on top of the frosting.
These were delicious!!!!! I don't really like eggnog, but I loved these cookies. They were light and fluffy and melted in my mouth. My husband and kids loved them. The only thing I didn't like (my preference only) was that they came out kind of like a mound after they were cooked. So with the remaining batches, I pressed each ball slightly with a cup to flatten just a little (like a snickerdoodle). I thought they cooked more evenly and had a better texture that way.
