Eggnog Cookies

1 1/2 sticks butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2/3 cup eggnog

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

3/4 tsp. nutmeg

3 cups flour

Frosting:

1/2 stick butter, softened

1 cup confectioners' sugar

3 Tbsp. eggnog

1 Tbsp. rum, optional

Ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs, eggnog, and vanilla, and mix well. Add salt, baking soda and nutmeg and mix well. Add flour and mix until combined. It should form a very soft dough.

Drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly brown. Let cool before frosting.

In a small bowl, mix together butter, confectioners' sugar, eggnog and rum. Spread onto cooled cookies and sprinkle with nutmeg. Let stand until set before storing in an airtight container.

*Message from Megan: This frosting is for adults only. If you'd like a kid-friendly version, just leave out the rum.
