Eggnog Cutout Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon eggnog
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, optional
4 to 5 tablespoons eggnog
Liquid or paste food coloring, optional

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs. Stir in eggnog. Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and nutmeg; gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with 2-1/2-in. cookie cutters dipped in flour. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.

Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. In a mixing bowl, beat confectioners' sugar, nutmeg if desired and enough eggnog to achieve icing consistency. Add food coloring if desired. Spread over cooled cookies; let dry. Makes about 4 dozen.
