I'm not as impressed with these cookies as other people seem to be. The cookies themselves have a nice texture, but don't overcook them! They get very dry if you let them get even the slightest bit brown on the bottom. As for the taste, they're pretty bland. I'd say they're just a vehicle for the icing, which doesn't taste very much like eggnog. Maybe it was because I didn't use real rum, I don't know. In fact, I used about 1 1/4 teaspoon of rum extract, as opposed to the 1/4 teaspoon called for, and it still didn't have the taste I was looking for. And it's too bad the icing didn't set up firmly. But what did I expect with all that butter in there? If I make these again I'll try spicing the dough up some, and using less butter in the icing.
