Eggnog Cookies with Eggnog Glaze
from Your Cup of Cake
- 2 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg + additional for garnish
- 1 and 1/4 cups white sugar
- 3/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup eggnog
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 and 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons eggnog
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon nutmeg.
In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter. Add eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks. Beat at medium speed with mixer until smooth.
Add the flour mixture and beat at low speed until just combined. Do not overmix.
Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheets or parchment paper, making the dough balls small as they will spread when baking. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg.
Bake 15-18 minutes or until the edges barely start to brown.
While cookies are in the oven, make the eggnog glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar with 3 tablespoons eggnog. Glaze cookies warm or cooled.
Go love on the special people in your lives!
Maybe make them some of these cookies.
Whatever you do, show them you love them and cherish your time together.
I know I will.
Merry Christmas to you all!
Peace, and bacon grease!
