This recipe was also apart of the 12 Days of Christmas Recipes {Here}One bite of these delicious cookies and they became my favorite.  After I took the first bite, I instantly wanted to not share them and eat them all myself.  But then I realized I wanted everyone to experience these amazing cookies.  My hubby for example, hates eggnog.  I had him take one bite and he loved them.  My kids, neighbors, family, everyone loved these cookies!  The eggnog is very subtle in these and the flavor is wonderfully balanced with the cinnamon and nutmeg.  The cookie was so soft and the glaze on top was heavenly!   My thighs will be thankful that I gave some of these away, but geez it was a hard thing to do!  These are the perfect holiday cookie!

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cupswhite sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup eggnog
1 teaspoonvanilla extract
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 1/4 cupsflour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Eggnog Glaze:
1 ½ cuppowdered sugar
3 tablespoons eggnog
1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Set aside.
3. Cream sugar and butter together in mixing bowl.
4. Add eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks.  Beat at medium speed with a mixer until smooth.
5. Add the flour mixture and beat at low speed until combined.  Do not over-mix.
6.  Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet or parchment paper and make the dough balls rather small because they will spread in the oven.  I always test about 3 cookies in the oven first before making an entire batch.  Sprinkle the cookies with nutmeg.
7. Bake 15-18 minutes, mine took 17, until the edges are lightly brown.
8.  While the cookies are in the oven make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar with 3 T eggnog.
9.  Drizzle the glaze over your cookies and devour!
