Shape these tasty eggnog cookies with star or snowflake cookie cutter, and glaze with eggnog icing. Sprinkle regular or colored sugar over tops. Delicious and so pretty.............Diana

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup egg nog
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Eggnog icing, optional (see recipe below)

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg nog, baking soda and nutmeg; mix well. Gradually add flour; mix well. Divide dough in half; chill overnight in refrigerator or 2 hours in freezer.

Preheat oven to 375º F. On well-floured surface, roll out half of dough to 1/8-inch thickness; cut with floured cookie cutters.

Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Ice and decorate if desired.

Eggnog Icing-Optional
In a small mixer bowl, beat 3 cups confectioners’ sugar and 1/4 cup softened butter or margarine until well blended. Gradually beat in 1/3 cup egg nog until icing is smooth. (Makes about 1 1/2 cups.)

I made these with smaller cookie cutters, and had to shorten the baking time a little after the first pan overcooked.. thankfully this recipe makes a LOT of cookies..

They weren't overly sweet, but VERY addictive. Definitely plan on making these again as Christmas gets closer.

I came upon this recipe by accident last year. It took about 15 searches to find it again. So glad I did. People LOVE these cookies! I do too!

Wish I known the frosting would thin as it sat. My frosting was way too wet because I added more eggnog because the frosting was so thick while mixing. They have a nice eggnog flavor. This makes @13 dozen.
