- 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour*

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar

- 2 tablespoons softened butter

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 300°F. Prepare baking sheets with parchment or Silpat. Set aside.
- In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and spices. Set aside.
- In bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter, and sugars. Once creamy, add eggnog, vanilla, rum, egg, and egg yolk. Beat on medium speed until well combined.
- Add dry ingredients all at once on low speed; mix only until just combined.
- Use cookie scoop to place dough on prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 18 minutes, or until lightly browned at edges. Cool on wire rack.
- To make icing, cream together all ingredients. Add more eggnog as needed to obtain the consistency you desire.
- Top cookies with a drizzle of icing and sprinkle with nutmeg.
