Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • Colored sugar
  • Vanilla frosting, optional

Directions

  1. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggnog, baking soda and nutmeg. Gradually add flour and mix well. Cover and chill 1 hour.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Using floured 3-1/2-in. cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes; place on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with colored sugar.
  3. Bake at 350° until edges are lightly browned, 6-8 minutes. Cool on wire racks. If desired, decorate with frosting.
