I tried these cookies because of the great reviews. They were terrible!! They tasted like flour. I thought I messed up at first, but I made 2 separate batches and followed the recipe exactly. No one liked them, not even the kids. I made a tasty eggnog icing, but even that didn't cover up the flour taste. Unfortunately, they ended up in the garbage.

These are wonderful! It was a bit confusing when the recipe said to mix ALL dry ingredients together in step 2 then said to mix sugar and butter together in step 3.It would be better to say Mix all dry ingredients except sugar.in step 2. They are amazingly delicious!

Simple to make. Holds it shape well--I used a melon ball scoop to place them. Fastest cookie I have ever made. Not too sweet!

I first printed this recipe out in 2007 and my paper is stained and tattered from using it year after year. It's such a wonderful recipe and will be adding them to my holiday cookie platters again this year. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful, easy recipe.

This recipe is fantastic! I love that the eggnog flavor isn't overpowering but you still taste it. The way my house smells when making these is almost as good as the cookies! I have made them for the last three years and haven't met anyone that didn't like them yet.
