This is one I've had pinned to my Christmas Cookie Exchange! board for while. It appealed to me because it elevates an ordinary oatmeal cookie to the special status of a Christmas cookie. I loved the fact that the glaze actually contains eggnog. I mistakenly thought I hadn't gotten around to trying this cookie recipe, but guess what?
The list doesn't lie! It was on my Christmas baking list -- the recipes I actually did make -- in 2014! You can see where I've marked off the boxes by the recipes that were actually made. Eggnog Oatmeal Cookies are about 2/3 of the way down on the list. Now that my memory has been jogged (it pays to keep lists and a Christmas notebook!) I do recall that these cookies were very tasty. I think my husband is probably the one who baked the cookies (he's helpful like that when he has the time) and that's why I didn't remember baking them. I do have a page in my Christmas notebook for "recipes to try" in which I note when we tried a certain recipe and how we liked it, but with Mr. T doing much of the baking the past few years, that kind of went by the wayside.
Planning to make these cookies again in 2016! I think they'd also be pretty with a few Christmas sprinkles atop the glazed area of the cookie.
