On the 12th Day….I think we are off a day!

But none the less, here is our recipe for today. Eggnog Thumbprints. I think I have made about 5 batches of these this season. Easy to “throw” together, great flavor and a little rum always makes it better.

¾ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1½ teaspoons vanilla
2 cup all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
pinch of nutmeg
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons spiced rum (or ¼ teaspoon rum extract)
pinch of nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a Sil-Pat or parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, beat together ¾ cup butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; mix to combine. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Scoop tablespoonfuls of cookie dough, and roll into balls. Using the back of a teaspoon measuring spoon, make indentations in the middle of each circle. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

In a small bowl, beat together ½ cup butter, powdered sugar, and rum until smooth. Add pinch of nutmeg.  Transfer frosting to a piping bag. Pipe a dollop of frosting into the indentation of each cookie.
