My family and I really liked the idea of an Eggnog cookie, so it was impossible to not try this recipe. In the end, we were all very pleased with how it turned out.
The cookie itself wasn't bad, but it's flavor was a bit bland, and while it was pretty much a sugar cookie by itself, I expected it to be a bit sweeter. The filling was delectable and sweet, and it made up for the slight blandness of the cookie. But instead of the rum, I added a tablespoon of eggnog, which was amazing. I found myself licking the bowl after filling the thumbprints. The nutmeg was a great addition, as well, it added a bit of spice that completed the cookie.
I have no doubt I'll make this again, but I'll probably add a bit more sugar/brown sugar. This is my personal preference though, I can't get enough sweetness. :) (Ps, I used a decorative spoon to press the cookies, which is why mine turned out crackled.)
