      We took this recipe and changed it up a bit. Doubled the nutmeg, put the rum flavoring in the cookie dough (used the same amount as the vanilla), and put the ground nuts in the dough as well. Then we dredged each baked cookie in powdered sugar, so they became more like Egg Nog Wedding Cookies. They are AWESOME!
