Here’s what you will need:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 cup eggnog
Cinnamon for garnish

Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, unsalted
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3-5 tablespoons eggnog
3 cups powdered sugar

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.

Then in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, whip together the butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. This will take 3-5 minutes. Next, mix in the egg yolks, one at a time. Then add the vanilla and rum extract and mix until blended.

With your mixer on low, slowly add about half of the dry ingredients, then the eggnog, then the rest of the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Place heaping tablespoons of the dough about two inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 11-14 minutes. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet several minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool. After the cookies have cooled completely, frost them with Eggnog Frosting. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon before the frosting sets.

To make the frosting, in the bowl of an electric mixer with a whisk attachment, whip the butter until light and fluffy. Add the rum extract and about three tablespoons of eggnog. Then, gradually mix in the powdered sugar. Add additional eggnog to reach the desired consistency.
