"Cake-like cookies with hints of eggnog and nutmeg. I've been making these every year for Christmas since I was 12, and every year at least a few people ask for the recipe -- and continue to request them every Christmas. I've been told by lots of people that they don't want me to buy them a gift. They just want me to make these cookies for them. I love bringing these to cookie exchanges and/or giving them as gifts. I know the original recipe came out of a magazine, but I don't remember which one."

"Great eggnog flavor!Very cake like texture. I used light eggnog witch worked out fine. I didn't roll them out into an oval shape i just shaped them into a ball. I had to cook them for 15 minutes but tasted delcious! Next time(there will defianlty be) i will probaly add golden raisins! thanks for the recipe!"
"These are absolutely delicious cookies, soft and cakelike. I took your advice and took the cookies out of the oven after 8 minutes, even though they didn't look done, but when I bit into one, they were done. I also made a buttercream icing, substituting eggnog for the milk. Thanks for this great recipe, which I'll be making every year from now on."
"These are fantastic cookies! They remind me of Cream teas Scones but in a cookie format with the addition of eggnog which is my new favorite flavor these days! Thanks for a great recipe! and thanks for sharing!"
"I made these over the holidays and just realized I failed to review them. I formed some as you described, then played around with different shapes for the rest. They had great flavor and sure made the house smell wonderful while they were baking. :) Thanks for posting the recipe!"
"These are SO good! I love the nutmeg smell as they are baking. Very light with a cake like texture. They disappeared quickly from the cookie tray I took to work. Thanks for the great recipe."
"These are YUMMY!!! I had to bake them for 14-15 minutes at 350. Sprinkled nutmeg on top. Flavor was very eggnog-y. Perfect!!!"
"These are very good cookies. I chilled mine in the freezer for about three hours and cooked them for 10 minutes in a ball shape. They turned out perfect. I did add some frosting, which I preferred to the powder sugar. I think I will be making these every year now."
"These were very good... They reminded me of a sugar cookie, but with a twist. I rolled them into balls and flattened them a little with a fork. I cooked them for 11 minutes I think... a couple were undercooked. - UPDATE - Changing my review to a 5 star... made these again for my Christmas cookie tray and they are just so yummy."
