Let's get started!

  2. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the egg and rum extract to the butter mixture, mix to combine.
  4. Add half of the flour mixture, mix until combined.
  5. Add all of the eggnog, mix until combined.
  6. Add the other half of the flour mixture and mix until combined.
  7. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to be 1/8" thick, then put into the freezer for 30 minutes. 
  8. Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  9. Using the small cookie cutters, cut out cookies and place on the parchment lined baking sheet. Use a sharp cutting knife, but out a small notch at the bottom of the cookie for sitting on the edge of the mug.
  10. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Cool completely. 

Time to Decorate!
