This sounded so good - and I was not disspointed! This recipe makes a delicious cookie. The flavor is subtle and wonderful. I liked it just as well without the frosting, but the frosting definitely adds a sweet, extra boost of eggnog flavor!




This is a recipe that came from Southern Living's holiday edition of their magazine, but it calls for a packaged sugar cookie mix, and I opted to make it from scratch. The sugar cookie recipe comes from "Taste of Home Cookies" cookbook.
