Contributed By: Parker


1-1/3 cups butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 large egg yolks, room temperature
2 tablespoons eggnog
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
3 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons rum extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 to 3 tablespoons eggnog

1. In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks, eggnog and extract. Gradually beat in flour. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 2 hours.
2. Shape into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 325° until bottoms are brown, 13 to 16 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
3. In a large bowl, beat the first five frosting ingredients until blended; beat in enough eggnog to reach desired consistency. Spread over cookies; sprinkle with additional nutmeg. Let stand until set. Store in airtight containers.
