Eggnog Icing for Sugar Cookies

It’s eggnog season and I couldn’t be any happier! I spend the season trying to find any way that I can to sneak it into my recipes- pancakes, cupcakes, and even sugar cookie icing! For  cookies, I love to take a delicious shortcut and use Betty Crocker Sugar Cookies, but making a homemade icing gives it a special touch. Keeping the baking and decorating simple gives me more time to enjoy it with the kids who really love getting their hands in there. Holidays are meant for spending time with the kids and  making memories together. This recipe for Eggnog Icing is the perfect topping for drop or cut out sugar cookies. Betty Crocker helps make it easy and tasty!
