2 1/2 cups

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; refrigerate 15 minutes. 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.

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!
