I got this recipe from a business associate, who is also an avid cookie baker. If you like egg nog, you'll love these little cookies!

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!
