I made these by the posted recipe- they were a little bland, maybe use 1 cup of eggnog and double the cinnamon and nutmeg. I also garnished them with the extra nutmeg AND some vanilla sugar.(gives them some sparkle)

I am too impatient to wait for dough to chill so I added an extra cup of flour and greased my hands so the dough would not stick. These turned out great.

I made theese last night! the familiy liked them a lot. I added a little extra eggnog because we love it so much. I agree with the first review; they taste better the next day!
