What I Thought:
These are super good and really easy. The best part is that you can make the dough ahead of time. If you freeze it in an airtight container you can make it up to 2 months ahead of time. The frosting is super yummy, but quite sweet. However, the cookies are somewhat bland so paired with the frosting, they are a very good balance and not too overwhelming. But I did the like the cookies plain right out of the oven while they were still hot. Once they cool, they are better with the frosting. The kids and DH ate the heck out of these. DH is not a fan of sweets so for him to eat them, that says a lot.
Changes I Made:
I followed this recipe exactly with the exception of the egg yolks. I cannot stand to waste when I cook, so I use two whole eggs instead of 4 egg yolks.
The eggnog I used was the Safeway brand found in the dairy case.
- Shape into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 325° for 13-16 minutes or until bottoms are brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
- In a large bowl, beat the first five frosting ingredients until blended; beat in enough eggnog to reach desired consistency. Spread over cookies; sprinkle with additional nutmeg. Let stand until set.
- Store in airtight containers.
