I worried a bit about these as I've never heard of an eggnog cookie. Happened across his recipe in an old cookbook. They are a very moist cookie. My family loved them!

I was not sure about this recipe. The baking at 300 and 20 mins. time made me think that it didn`t seem right. I baked them at 350 for 11 mins. They came out good. I thought they were lite and full of flavor with a hint of sweetness. If your looking for flavor and just a little sweet, this the one. I tried them and my family thought they were good for something different. I`m putting this one my recipe box. Thank You Connie for posting this one.

These were pretty good. I think they could use just a pinch of salt. Mine turned out much flatter than the ones in the picture, so maybe I needed a bit more flour. I did use 1 1/4 c whole wheat flour and 1 c white flour.

Another delicious recipe! I made just as directed except replaced 1 1/4 cups of the flour with whole wheat flour. My son LOVED them....we did too!! Will make again!
