Eggnog Cookies

"My Husband loves, LOves, LOVES Eggnog and these cookies taste just like the classic holiday drink.  They have become one of our favorite Christmas cookies and we love to sprinkle them with fresh grated nutmeg!"

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream together butter and brown sugar.  Add egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, nutmeg and salt and add gradually to butter mixture.  Mix until completely combined.  Form cookie by rolling 1 Tablespoon of dough into a ball.  Flatten the ball and place it onto a non-stick cookie sheet, spacing cookies about 2 inches apart.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.  Frost with Eggnog Butter-Cream Icing.
Eggnog Butter-Cream Icing:
1 stick or 1/2 cup butter, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon rum flavoring
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup Coffee-mate Eggnog Latte coffee creamer*
ground nutmeg

Cream together butter and powdered sugar a little at a time until well combined. Add rum flavoring and vanilla extract.  Mix in coffee creamer.  Frost cookies.  Sprinkle with nutmeg.
*If you can't find Eggnog creamer, you may substitute eggnog.


  1. Hey, Kandy! I was ranting and raving to Randy about the iced Christmas cookies while Janet (the other reporter) was raving about these cookies.
