For the Cookies:
1 C Butter, softened
200 Gr Sugar (1 C)
1 Lg Egg
1 C Eggnog
422 Gr AP Flour (3¼ C)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Nutmeg

For the Icing:
1½ C Confectioners Sugar
3 Tb Eggnog
¼ tsp Nutmeg

Makes about 50 cookies.

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Grease cookie sheets or use parchment paper.

Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.

Stir in the egg and eggnog.

Separately combine the remaining cookie ingredients and stir them into the egg and sugar mixture.

Drop rounded spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden.

Combine the icing ingredients in a small bowl, adding the eggnog a tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is achieved.

Spread onto the cooled cookies and decorate with sprinkles or colored sugar.
Thank you, Andy. Does the icing get hard, like royal icing?
While the frosting is still wet/soft, you can add sprinkles or similar.

We do not because SO's anise cookies look identical the these egg nog cookies so we differentiate by putting decorations on the frosting for only one of the two.

Yes. If you touch it, it will not stick to your finger. SO stacks them after they have set.
Thank you, Andy. I may do a sprinkle of nutmeg on the wet frosting. Not sure if DD will want to do another kind of cookie for her gift trays this year, but they will definitely be going on my list. She will be helping with the baking (my back doesn't like all the bending), so I defer to her.
