Eggnog Cookies

I have learned something while making these cookies. Eggnog has no middle ground; you either LOVE it, or you HATE it!! To each there own. I happen to be one of those "weirdo's" that LOVE LOVE LOVE Eggnog! I found this recipe for Eggnog Cookies, and I was all like =O WHAT?!?!?!
I knew they HAD to be made!!!! So with a little neighborly support (Thanks J for the eggnog) I made my house smell like warm, comforting eggnog! MMMMMmmmmmmm
*Makes 3 dozen cookies*
2 1/4 C Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/4 C Sugar
3/4 C Butter, softened
1/2 C Eggnog
1 tsp Vanilla 
2 egg yolks
1 Tbl nutmeg for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 300*
whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar, add eggnog vanilla and egg yolks. When it's smooth (Takes about 5 mins) mix in dry ingrediants until combined.
scoop onto cookie sheet 1 inch apart and bake at 300* for 20-25 mins.
Let cool on cookie sheet for a few mins and then transfer to a wire rack.

Eggnog Glaze
3 C Powdered Sugar
1/4 C Soft Butter
1/2 C Eggnog

Beat butter and sugar, and then pour in eggnog while mixing until desired consistency is reached.  Spread/drizzle/drip onto your cookies and then sprinkle with nutmeg!
*don't go crazy with the nutmeg sprinkle, it doesn't take much*
 These are super delish!! And if you like the taste but not texture of eggnog, make these!!!! You get the flavor with out the thick texture of eggnog!!
Needless to say, this one's a keeper!!!
