  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and extracts; mix well. Combine the flour, nutmeg and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into 1/2-in.-wide logs. Cut into 2-in. pieces. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-14 minutes or until center is set and edges are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
  3. For frosting, in a mixing bowl, combine the butter, confectioners' sugar, extracts and enough cream to achieve a spreading consistency. Frost cooled cookies.

These cookies came out hard and chalky. They tasted good frosted, but very bland cookie. I will not be making these again.

In an effort to use up some rum extract, I came across this recipe and I'm glad I did. Only 4 stars though because without the icing, the cookies are just okay. The icing definitely makes the ...

Fantastic! Just a couple tricks for icing use a fork to spread on it will leave a texture that looks like bark. Then sprinkle nutmeg over icing before it sets.

Theese were great! A subtle taste of rum, nice and hard and the frosting tastes great. Takes a little bit of time to put on the frosting, but it's well worth the effort!

SO YUMMY. i made these for christmas platters and we've already eaten half of them!

Very tasty cookie! I used Bacardi light rum instead of rum extract, and used evaporated milk instead of half and half. Definitely worth making again!
