1 Cup Unsalted Butter, Softened
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Egg Nog
3 1/4 Cups All-purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
3 Tbsps Egg Nog
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F., and cover two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add the egg, and egg nog and mix well.
Combine the flour, baking powder and soda, nutmeg and salt and add the egg nog mixture and stir just until mixed.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes until set and lightly browned.
To prepare the glaze, mix the powdered sugar and nutmeg in a bowl, then stir in the egg nog one tablespoon at a time until you have created a glaze the consistency of thick cream. You may have to add more egg nog to get the desired consistency.
Spread the glaze on the tops of each cookie, and allow to dry completely before storing in an airtight container.
