Would make this again.
These are really good, and they're very pretty with the colored sugar. I ran out of the sugar though, next time I'll buy twice as much as it calls for. If you do run out, just use a few drops of food coloring in regular sugar, it wasn't as pretty but still nice. 4 stars

I just made these. They are different and tasty. But as another reviewer noted, they do spread a lot. At first I thought this might be because I used "European" butter with its richer butterfat content. But that would not account for quite so soft a dough. So then I used a search engine on "eggnog snickerdoodles" and found what looks like the original recipe--because a specific brand of butter is mentioned, and that company is credited with the recipe. And sure enough, that recipe calls for 2-3/4 cups flour, not 2-1/4 cup as is called for here. Next year I might try using 2-1/2 cups and see how those come out. After I made one test cookie and saw how much it spread, I made relatively small balls--my total yield was 67 cookies. Even at this small size, each cookie came out to be about 2-1/2 inches in diameter. I also found that my test cookie baked at 400 degrees got a little bit too brown, so I turned the oven down to 350 and baked these smaller cookies 11 minutes. Even though the recipe as given at this site does appear to be slightly altered from its original form, I did like these a lot. One note: I ended up using over 1/2 cup of colored sugar, which makes sense, given how small the balls were and hence how much more surface area I was covering. I also noted that the nutmeg particles, being smaller, tended to fall to the bottom of my sugaring pan, so that the first cookies rolled had much more sugar and the last had much more nutmeg. Once I realized this, I prepared the sugar/nutmeg mixture in smaller batches. I do believe that next year I will mix the nutmeg in with the dough. This should create an even distribution and elmininate this small objection. All in all, these were worth the time and trouble. 4 stars

These are wonderful Christmas cookies. Taste a lot like eggnog without the heaviness. I ground my own nutmeg for a a coarser texture that looked really nice. 4 stars

I made these cookies last year! They were awesome. My boyfriend enjoyed them so much, he specifically asked if I was making them again! They are good frozen, too! I would recommend making the balls really small becuase the cookie spreads a great deal. Live and learn. 5 stars

I found this recipe on a Friday and by Sunday had made 3 batches. My daughter who is a very picky eater liked them very much. Also my mother in law raved about them. I found this recipe easy and will be making them again very soon. I am always looking for different cookie recipes to try. 5 stars

I was so excited to give these a try and so disappointed in the results. The flavor is wonderful, but they bake flatter then a pancake. I checked my other snickerdoodle recipes and all of them have basically the same ingredients with one big exception. More flour! 3 stars

These turned out great. I love snickerdoodles and eggnog is a family favorite so the two together were perfect for everyone. 5 stars
