      Love these cookies! I found icing them was a messy pain, so I put the icing in a plastic bag, cut a corner off and piped the icing on. Much easier! Can't wait for the holidays to make these again!

      Eggnog being my husband’s favorite flavor, we get many things eggnog flavored even the coffee we drink during the holidays needs this distinguished flavor. My second and third son share this love the rest of us just tolerate his addiction, taking it or just leaving it for the more passionate lovers of eggnog. So as a compliment to our coffee I thought … I wonder if there is an eggnog cookie and sure enough… my husband flipped over these, I do believe he ate the entirety of the batch in two days. I myself being some what …oh… I have to roll these…. decided with the first cookie sheet I would just drop them, and they turned out fine. I also changed the frosting a bit, used eggnog, and powdered sugar and sadly I did not have any rum extract so I used a little vanilla extract. Then carefully I sprinkled just a touch of nutmeg for extra flavor plus it looks cool. There is no doubt in my husband’s mind that I will be making them again and next time I will use rum extract.
