Ingredients

Cookie

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

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

Decorator sugars, dragées or frosting, as desired

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Heat oven to 375°F.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Place cooling rack with cookies over waxed paper. Brush glaze over cookies; decorate as desired. Let stand until set.

Recipe Tips

To freeze cookies for longer storage, bake cookies as directed and cool on cooling rack. Place cookies into resealable plastic freezer container in single layer with waxed paper between layers. Thaw at room temperature. Frost cookies.

I thought these would be like sugar cookies, but they are very shortbread-like, and a bit dry for my taste. The dough was easy to work with (I refrigerated overnight), and smelled wonderful as I was mixing it. But the glaze would not come together for me at all - not sure what I did wrong. I plan to just decorate with piped royal icing and skip the glaze - pity, since the eggnog flavor is rather muted in just the cookie.

Potentially very good, but it is too short. I used heavy organic cream, which might have made a difference, but next time I will use at least 3T.

These are simply delicious.

this dough was extremely soft even after refridgerated for over four hours. Not worth the effort.
