Egg Nog Cookies

By Amy Meiers

Makes about 5 ½ dozen cookies
As soon as I see egg nog in the grocery store I know that the holidays are near! These cookies have an incredible egg nog flavor but in a rich buttery cookie. They are super easy to make and my son always loves to help me! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!!!
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature
1 ½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 TBS brandy
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
Combine the following ingredients together and set aside
1 ½ cup powdered sugar
3 TBS egg nog
¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg- plus more for garnish

Heat oven to 350
Sift the flour, baking soda and salt together and set aside. Cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy- approx. 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs, brandy, vanilla and nutmeg and mix until combined. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined- be careful not to over mix!
Scoop the batter onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes or until the outsides of the cookies are golden. Remove from oven and spread a small amount of glaze over the warm cookies and finish with a light dusting of freshly grated nutmeg.
