I rarely add salt to dishes like this. So I just didn't add the salt. The butter has some in it after all. And it wasn't needed. They were still wonderful, and tasty, without the salt.
I liked how soft, and almost cake like the cookie can be. They plump up beautifully. It's definitly a keeper. I found, however, the cookie was too sweet! Some said rich, but I found it was sweet. I'll be cutting the 2 cups of sugar to 1 1/2 cups next time, and hope that's enough of a reduction.
After reading the recipe was kind of bland, in terms of seasonings, I spiced it up, adding 1 tsp Cinnamon, 1/4 Allspice, 1/4 tsp Ginger, 1/2 tsp Cloves in addition to the 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, since this is how I spice my eggnog drink. It seemed logical to me to season eggnog cookies the same way. The spicing was good, and I will keep the measurements as is. Makes for a spicy cookie, but not too spicy (at least not for me).
I used rum extract in my frosting, instead of vanilla. I really liked that addition. Though I haven't figured out exactly how much extract to use to make sure it's enough, but not overpowering. I'm still playing with that. Perhaps when I figure out how much I like I'll update this message. :)
Thanks for the recipe!
