Eggnog cookies

TJs had tasty eggnog cookies for their sample the other day, so I bought the eggnog and made the cookies. Pretty much this; the coffee-for-vanilla substitution was accidental but I like it.

1.5 sticks butter, softened
1 c sugar
1/2 c eggnog
2 egg yolks
1 t coffee extract
2.5 c flour
1 t baking powder
3/4 t each cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom

1/2 c powdered sugar
1 t nutmeg
3-5 t eggnog

Preheat oven to 325F. Cream together butter and sugar, then beat in other wet ingredients, then mix in dry ingredients. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased airbake cookie sheets to make about 4 dozen little cookies. Bake for 25 min until barely browning, and transfer immediately to a cooling rack. The next morning, whisk together powdered sugar, nutmeg, and eggnog to make a glaze, and drizzle a bit on each cookie (using the whisk as a drizzling device worked well for me). Let set while working from a coffeeshop for the morning, then bring into work for group meeting in the afternoon.
