Eggnog Thumbprint Cookies

 3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg 
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of all-purpose flour 
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tablespoon rum
1 pinch ground nutmeg

 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, cream together 3/4 cup butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour and salt; stir into the creamed mixture by hand to form a soft dough. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Make an indentation in the center of each cookie using your finger. 
3. Bake for 12 minutes. Cool completely.
4. In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup butter, confectioner's sugar, and rum. Spoon rounded teaspoonfuls of filling onto cookies. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Let stand until set before storing in an airtight container.
