A question about a recipe: Pomegranate molasses glazed holiday eggnog cookies

I have a question about the recipe "Pomegranate molasses glazed holiday eggnog cookies" from desertchef. It looks like the butter has been left out of this recipe entirely. How much for the dough, and how much for the glaze? How many does this really make -- not 12 I hope?

It looks like these are pretty standard eggnog cookies with a pomegranate molasses glaze. If you want to make these, I'd follow a recipe for eggnog cookies like this one: http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/glazed-eggnog-spritz/5c4ad648-d8c8-4848-b220-a94c2af082a4 and then make a glaze following the regular recipe for glaze: 1 cup confectioners sugar, 2 TB water, 1 TB light corn syrup, and instead of 10 drops of food coloring, I'd add the pomegranate molasses. If it's too runny, you can always add more powdered sugar.

Very good question, suzy. Clearly butter is the missing ingredient. As well, I suspect that, since it comprises 5 cups of all-purpose flour, it yields significantly more than 12 cookies. Perhaps 12 dozen? I would suggest emailing the author directly. It's 2 years old and the only recipe he/she has posted, but you can find the author's page here: https://food52.com/users/95399-desertchef Click on the envelope icon to send a direct email.
