Love, Love, Love these cookies! If you're a fan of eggnog then these are your cookies.
I am eating one now, they are wonderfull, I found the recipe in the christmas at home, christmas cookies cookbook. The only difference is that instead of egg white and sprinkles it has the recipe for eggnog icing. I came on to post it seeing as they are sooooooooo good, but i guess i am to late!
Everyone at the cookie exchange enjoyed these cookies. Thanks for the recipe. What a fun way to get the eggnog flavor.
