Eggnog Cookies

Contributed by Carolyn from "your cup of cake" blog
1 1/4 C white sugar 3/4 C butter, softened 1/2 C eggnog 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 egg yolks 1 tsp nutmeg 2 1/4 C flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp cinnamon Eggnog Glaze: 1 ½ cup powdered sugar 4 Tbs eggnog Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 300°F 2. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. 3. Cream sugar and butter until light 4. Add eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks; beat at medium speed with mixer until smooth. 5. Add flour mixture and beat at low speed until just combined. 6. Do not over mix 7. Spoon onto un-greased cookie sheets or parchment paper and make the dough balls rather small 8. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. 9. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until the edges barely start to brown. 10. While cookies are in the oven, make the eggnog glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar with 4 Tbs eggnog (I like more for eggnog for stronger flavor) 11. Glaze your cookies warm or cooled and top with little cinnamon.
