These sound really great! The recipe can be simplified by using your favorite flavor of canned icing & then dipping into the nuts. Did you know that spices like Nutmeg expire? This can affect the taste of your cookies. To check if yours are fresh, check the bottle/can for an expiration date. If you can't find it on your bottle/can you might like to go to McCormick's web page. They have a tutorial and information on the freshness of their spices. You'll also find MORE recipes using their products. Click on the nutmeg bottle below for a direct link to check the age of your nutmeg.
