I love this recipe. Its simple, easy and it makes 60 cookies for my cookie trays. I make sure I use alot of sugar so the colors are bright. Prep time does not include chilling time.

These were really quite good. They actually taste like eggnog! They have a wonderful texture. The only thing I changed was I added the cinnamon to the dough because it dulled the color of ths decorating sugars and I wanted the cookies to be more vibrant.

We made these last year for Christmas for the first time and people just loved them. I got several comments on them. I'm defiantly going to make them again this year. My family and friends just love them!
