Nutmeg Cookie Log


1 Cup Butter
3/4 Cup Sugar
1 egg
2 tsp. rum
2 tsp. vanilla
3 Cups flour
1 tsp nutmeg

Shape into long roll 2" wide. Cute into 1/2" lengths. Bake until real light colored (approx. 10 min) at 350. Frost with rum flavored frosting.

Haylee's Note:
These cookies are really easy, and really inexpensive. Although, I am nervous because I went to Smith's and they didn't have any rum extract. Hopefully they have it somewhere else. Also, as you can see from the picture, if you use a cake decorating tip to do the frosting, they look a lot better. I used the wrong tip, but they still worked. Sometimes I even sprinkle a little more nutmeg on top. You can also use food coloring for the frosting if you are doing a baby shower or something (to make them pink or blue). These cookies would also fun for Halloween, and you could make them look like mummies by doing two dots for eyes!
