Number of Servings: 48


    2 1/4 cups flour (I used 1.5 cups all purpose & .75 cup whole wheat)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    3/4 cup SALTED butter, room temp
    1/2 cup eggnog (I used reduced fat)
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 egg yolks

    3 C. confectioners sugar
    1/4 C. softened butter or margarine
    1/3 C. eggnog (use as much as you need)
    Nutmeg, for garnish, if desired


Preheat oven to 300F.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg; mix well with a whisk and set aside. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks and beat until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Chill dough for at least 15 minutes.

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg or skip this step and sprinkle on the nutmeg after you ice the cookies. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until bottoms turn light brown.

Transfer to cool, flat surface immediately with spatula.

Eggnog Icing
3 C. confectioners sugar
1/4 C. softened butter or margarine
1/3 C. eggnog (use as much as you need)

In small mixer bowl, beat confectionersí sugar and butter or margarine until well blended. Gradually beat in eggnog until icing is smooth. Makes about 1 1/2 cups (this came out to be WAY too much icing the way I garnished them; I put the icing in a baggy, snipped the corner and drizzled it over the cookies before sprinkling with nutmeg - it was plenty of frosting, added a pretty touch, and used less icing.) Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg after icing.
