Eggnog Chai Snickerdoodle Cookie Recipe

These might be my new favorite cookies. The icing is topnotch. Seriously, if you enjoy eggnog this icing is for you! And the cookies are nice and airy with that warm hint of spice. This recipe was only slightly adapted from Half Baked Harvest, so if you want her's (which are in the shapes of cute snowmen) go over here.
