I won't bore you with our insane cookie making holiday traditions and a long drawn out story of how these came to be my favorites. I'll just tell you what I like to do to them. Yes, this recipe was found online. Yes, I tweaked it above. Yes, I have more pointers to change it up a bit too. For a thicker buttery taste, use 3/4 cup butter and a little extra eggnog. Also, the nutmeg is the flavor here so I sprinkle it HEAVY! I also like to undercook for a softer cookie. These will easily get too hard if you bake too long and ruin the mental expectation of an eggnog cookie.
I hope you enjoy these! We do every year. A few times HAHA!
