Eggnog on a Stick

A cookie from a friend's childhood has become a new favorite of ours.

Nutmeg Logs

1 cup butter
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
2 t. vanilla
2 t. rum flavoring or rum
3 cups flour
1 t. nutmeg
¼ t. salt

Cream butter and sugar. Blend in egg, vanilla, and rum flavoring. Add flour, nutmeg and salt.
Roll dough into ¾ to 1” thick “snakes”. Slice 2 – 3” long.*
Bake at 350 F for 12 to 15 minutes until set.

Frost with:
3 T. butter
½ t. vanilla
1 t. rum flavoring or rum
½ cup powdered sugar

Sprinkle with nutmeg.

*We horsed around with the dough this once to make mini yule log shapes, but the Play-Doh snake method is the specified and much quicker technique for making these yummy tidbits.

Looks like something I'll have to try. I especially like the rum part. So shouldn't they be rum logs since there's more rum or rum flavoring than nutmeg? Just askin'

Probably you are right Honeybee, but truth in advertising might not go over so well at the church Xmas bake sale.
