PLEASE do not color the icing! This cookie is meant to LOOK like a LOG; thus, score the icing with fork tines and sprinkle with nutmeg. Icing can't be too thin, or you won't accomplish the look of rough bark. I ship these off to my brother and sister every Christmas, as this cookie has been a family tradition. It has carried over to MY children. This is one of two cookies REQUIRED at Christmas. No rum in mine, and I actually use half unsalted butter, half margarine, which gives me the taste and texture I want.
