3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/3 cup prepared eggnog
1 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg 
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups powdered sugar
4 to 6 tablespoons prepared eggnog
1 to 2 food colors
Mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips


Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add 1/3 cup eggnog, egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Beat until well mixed.

Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).

Heat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 3 to 4-inch snowman cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.

Combine powdered sugar and enough eggnog for desired spreading consistency in small bowl; mix well. Remove one-third of frosting; divide into 2 small bowls. Tint each bowl of frosting with food color as desired.

Frost snowmen with white frosting. Use tinted frosting to decorate cookies, as desired. Add miniature chocolate chips for eyes and buttons.

Recipe Tip: For wavy effect, pipe tinted frosting in parallel lines. Drag toothpick through frosting before it sets.
