Learn How it Works...
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream, or milk
1 teaspoon rum extract
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
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
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. 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.
