Egg Nog Cookies

Someone stole the cookies from the cookie jar!  I am pretty sure it is my husband.  I just made this batch three days ago and they are gone.  So I guess this means that they taste good.  Even though there is egg nog in the cookie dough, the real flavor of egg nog is in the icing.

Egg Nog Cookies

Egg Nog Cookie Dough

1 C Egg Nog

1 C margarine

1 C sugar

1 large egg

3 1/4 C all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

Egg Nog Icing

1 1/2 C confectioners sugar

3 TB Egg Nog

Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease cookie sheets.

Cream the margarine and sugar together until smooth.  Stir in the egg and egg nog.

Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.  Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until well blended.

Drop round spoonfuls of dough onto prepared cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a cooing rack.

In a small bowl, stir the confectioners sugar with the egg nog together until the desire consistency is reached.  Spread onto cooled cookies and let dry.
