I love making rolled cookies! Since the stores start stocking the shelves with eggnog right after or even before Thanksgiving, half the work can be done before the craziness of the holidays really begin. The dough can be made well in advance and for short term freshness can be stored in the refrigerator and for long term stored in the freezer.
Grab a bag of butterscotch hard candies from Dollar Tree, unwrap and throw them in your blender, grind up and spoon the powder into the center of each cookie for a nice crunchy center. You can use any cookie cutter, I chose the star. I like the golden yellow center the candy gave and I thought it went with a star shape.
Making the white chocolate eggnog drizzle is easy. All you do is melt the white chocolate (I used a 12 ounce bag of bright white candy melts) and add 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Pour the melted candy into a squeeze bottle, zip top bag or pipping bag, snip one corner and in a back and forth motion add the drizzle, turn the cooling rack to add more drizzle in another direction.
