It's eggnog time of year. Last year I made these eggnog muffins. This year I decided to try some frosted cookies. This recipe is from a recipe copycat site. I have never had Mrs. Fields eggnog cookies but I am sure they are delicious just like these cookies. Have a great weekend.
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1-1/4 cups sugar
6 tbsp unsalted butter (original recipe calls for 3/4 cup salted butter)
6 tbsp salted butter
1/2 cup eggnog
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg yolks
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well with a whisk and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butters and sugar with an electric mixer. Add eggnog, vanilla, and egg yolks and beat at medium speed until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients and beat a a low speed just until combined.
Bake cookies for 20-23 minutes or until bottoms turn light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cool before frosting.
While cookies are cooling, make eggnog frosting.
3 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1/3 cup eggnog (or more if needed)
In a small mixer bowl, beat confectioners sugar and butter until well blended. Gradually beat in eggnog until frosting is smooth.
Frost cooled cookies and sprinkle with a little bit of nutmeg.
