03 hrs 30 min



1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 tablespoons light rum or milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons large grain sugar


1 1/3 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 1/2 teaspoons light rum  

1 to 2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Half & Half


 *Substitute 1/4 teaspoon rum extract.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar and pecan pieces in food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Cover; process 45-60 seconds or until pecans are very finely chopped. Combine sugar mixture, 1 cup butter, 2 tablespoons rum and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half; shape each half on lightly floured surface into 10-inch long roll. Place onto waxed paper. Flatten sides to form triangle, using waxed paper to help shape triangle. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Cut each log into 1/4-inch slices with sharp, serrated knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle triangles with large grain sugar. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except half & half in small bowl. Beat at low speed, adding enough half & half for desired spreading consistency. For each sandwich cookie, spread 3/4 teaspoon filling on bottom of cookie. Top with second cookie, sugar-side up. Squeeze together gently.

Tip #1

- Large grain sugar adds a sweet sparkle to the tops of cookies. It is available in the baking section of large supermarkets or baking and cake decorating specialty stores.

Tip #2

- Use 2 rulers to shape triangle by pushing sides flat with rulers on opposite sides at the same time.

These are the most delightful cookies you could ever taste. I did not take the time to make triangles, just made them round. Taste the same. You will not be disappointed, they melt in your mouth.
