  1. Whip butter. Add sugar and brown sugar and mix well. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  2. Add pumpkin, eggnog, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda, and mix well.
  3. Add flour and mix just until combined. Dough should be soft and sticky.

Notes
*Store bought prepared eggnog is quite different than the homemade variety. This recipe was made using the store bought eggnog, which is what I recommend.
