this recipe was yummy but it needed just a little flare so I took 3/4 cup of confectioner's sugar with 1tsp of nutmeg and mixed about 3-4 tablespoons of eggnog into it to just make it slightly runny. After putting it in a pastry bag with a tiny hole at the end I drizzled it over the cookies then sprinkled red and green sugar over it to give it a festive look. It took a bit for the cookies to dry but it seemed to go faster when I put them in the oven that was barely warm after having it shut off from baking for a while. YUMMY this way!
I made the recipe as directed but they seemed very blah. I decided to give it a 2nd try and made several changes. To upped the eggnog to 3/4c, changed the vanilla extract to rum extract and to compensate for the added liquid I upped the flour to 2 1/2c. The changes worked like a charm, the cookies were soft and chewy and very eggnoggy. I don't know if the rum extract would have made the same impact on the original recipe but I'm not going back, the 2nd batch were gone in a flash!
I made these for my secretaries at Christmas,and dethroned the office cookie queen. Excellent.
I did as recommended earlier and upped the eggnog to 3/4 c., and did rum extract (plus a little vanilla for good measure). I added some extra nutmeg and sprinkled plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg over the top. Tasty!
The recipe was not quite right until i changed the sugar to half dark brown and half white. I too changed the amt of egg nog to 3/4c and increased the flour by 1/4c. I also changed the vanilla to spiced rum (real thing) and topped with a wonderful egg nog flavored buttercream icing following recipe on box and also adding part spiced rum for the liquid. Its amazing how this changed the recipe. ENJOY
These cookies are delicious--slightly crispy, a little chewy, and a delicate eggnog flavor. I did bake as long as specified on the first batch, but increased the temp by about 10 degrees & baked for less time the second batch, because I like a little browner crust. I mixed nutmeg with sugar for the final sprinkle before baking. Smells & tastes like the holidays!
My family loves this cookie! I added a pecan on the top it really dressed it up and made it perfect for our tastes.
Great recipe. Everybody who tried them loved it, except my daughter. She doesn't like any cookies unless they have some form of chocolate in them.
