I created this cookie recipe because my sons liked eggnog so much. After frosting the cookies, you can add to their festive flair by sprinkling them with colored sugar. —Glenna Tooman, Boise, Idaho

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon eggnog
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ICING:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, optional
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons eggnog
  • Liquid or paste food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Stir in eggnog. Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and nutmeg; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with floured 2-1/2-in. cookie cutters. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  3. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, nutmeg, if desired, and enough eggnog to achieve icing consistency. Add food coloring, if desired. Spread over cooled cookies; let stand until set.
