2-1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1-1/4 cups white sugar
3/4 cups salted butter, softened
1/2 cup egg nog
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 large egg yolks
1 Tbsp. ground nutmeg
Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well with wire whisk
and set aside. Cream sugar and butter until it forms a grainy paste. Add
egg nog, vanilla and egg yolks and beat at medium speed until smooth.
Add flour mixture and beat at low speed just until combined (do not
overmix). Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets 1 inch
apart. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until
bottoms turn light brown in a 325 degree preheated oven.
