1/2 - cup (1 stick) real unsalted butter, softened
1 - cup sugar
1 - egg
1 - teaspoon vanilla extract (or Jack Daniels)
1/4 - tsp rum extract
dash of ground nutmeg
2 1/2 - cups all-purpose flour
1/2 - teaspoon baking soda
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/2 - 1 cup - eggnog
2 - 3 - tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
3 - 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 - cup eggnog
1/2 - teaspoon vanilla extract
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla and rum extract.
Watch them closely they may not take the full 10 minutes, depending on your oven. The cookies are done when they are golden brown around the edges but still light in color on top. Test the cookies with a toothpick to make sure they are done.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then remove to a cooling rack, cool completely and frost.
Combine butter, confectioners' sugar, eggnog and vanilla in a mixing bowl; beat until smooth.
If the frosting is to runny add more confectioners sugar. If it is really thick add a bit more eggnog. It should be spreadable.
Frost the cookies and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar on top. I used regular granulated sugar mixed with ground cinnamon. You can also sprinkle a little nutmeg on top!
