  1. Preheat oven 300 degrees. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter with an electric mixer to form a grainy paste. Add eggnog, vanilla and egg yolks and beat at medium until smooth. Add dry ingredients and beat at a low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
