The eggnog flavour was mostly lost during cooking but the hint of cinnamon and nutmeg still made a cameo appearance. Unfortunately cinnamon and nutmeg cookies aren't entirely delicious. I've had worse cookies, they aren't awful, they just aren't delicious. Next time I'll make ginger snaps, Joy of Cooking has a wonderful recipe.
update: People have been dropping in and trying the cookies. So far everyone has liked them, maybe I'm too critical.
