Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon rum extract
1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla
2 1/2 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Glaze

1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon rum extract
3 to 5 tablespoons water
Decorator sugars, dragées or frosting, as desired

Directions

Combine 1 cup butter and sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, whipping cream, 1 teaspoon rum extract and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed. 

Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 2-3 hours or until firm. 

Heat oven to 375°F

Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/4-inch snowflake-shaped cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets; refrigerate 15 minutes. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. 

Combine powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons butter, corn syrup and 1/4 teaspoon rum extract in bowl. Beat at medium speed, adding enough water for desired glazing consistency. 

Place  cooling rack with cookies over waxed paper. Brush glaze over cookies; decorate, as desired. Let stand until set.

Recipe Tip

Gluten-Free Flour Blend: Combine 2 cups rice flour, 2/3 cup potato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Use appropriate amount for recipe; store remainder in container with tight-fitting lid. Stir before using.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made these MANY times, sometimes without the spices and just vanilla. Hard to believe they're gluten free.
these cookies are amazing. i ended up putting in allspice instead of just cinnamon and nutmeg and i put double what they call for. i also had to add 1 more cup of gluten free flour! other wise they are delicious!
