Eggnog Thumbprint Cookies

It's that time of year again!  Christmas Cookies are "in the house!"

Welcome to #ChristmasCookies Week! That time of year when we soften the butter, fire up the oven and make cookie trays for family, friends, and neighbors. This year more than 20 top-notch bloggers are sharing their very favorite creations for all to make and enjoy. Join us for a week’s worth of Christmas cookie deliciousness.

Check out all these delicious cookies that we are sharing today.  There will be even more cookies tomorrow, and I'll be sharing my Easy Christmas Cookies.  Come back to see that recipe tomorrow!
Our family loves eggnog. These eggnog-flavored cookies are so delicious, especially served chilled from the refrigerator! We like to sprinkle freshly grated nutmeg on top of each warm cookie. This really brings out the eggnog flavor. We use store-bought eggnog, the thicker kind, for the cookies. Our homemade eggnog is a thinner product that makes the cookies spread too thin.
