Recipe by Mrs. Gravy

My mom found this recipe in a magazine and it is my new favorite. If you love eggnog, you'll love this cookie! Not too hard, not too soft, and it melts in your mouth.

I really liked these! I subbed eggnog for the creamer and mine came out beautifully! Used eggnog in the icing as well.
