Ingredients

For The Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter slightly softened
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup eggnog

For The Eggnog Icing

  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp eggnog
  • ground nutmeg for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg yolks and vanilla to the mixture and beat until smooth. Finally, add eggnog and mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
  • Slowly add flour mixture into the eggnog mixture and stir until combined. Chill dough for 20 minutes.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use a cookie scoop or drop spoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Do not over cook. Remove cookies from pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
