    Nutmeg Cookie Logs


    Recipe Description
    These should come with a warning - SO GOOD THAT EVERYONE WILL DEMAND THEM EVERY YEAR!! (Not to mention, they are really cute, too!) (The first time I made them, I wrote "! Good !" in the margins of the cookbook.)
    Preparation Steps:
    Put butter out at room temp to soften.

    Dough must be chilled briefly (30-45 minutes)
    Level of Difficulty:
    Medium
    Time Needed:
    2 hours (+ chilling time)
    Ingredients:
    Cookie:

    3/4 c. sugar
    1 c. butter, softened
    2 t. vanilla
    2 t. rum extract
    1 egg
    3 c. flour
    1 t. nutmeg

    Frosting:

    2 c. powdered sugar
    3 T. butter, softened
    3/4 t. rum extract
    1/4 t. vanilla extract
    2-3 T. half-and-half
    nutmeg (garnish)
    Serves:
    approx 5 dozen cookies
    Directions:
    In a large bowl, beat sugar, 1 c. butter, 2 t. vanilla, 2 t. rum extract, and egg until light and fluffy. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour and 1 t. nutmeg; mix well. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 30-45 minutes.

    Heat oven to 350F. Divide dough into six pieces (I divide it into six, then divide those into twelve, then divide those into twenty-four, so each ball rolls out to 3 "logs".). On lightly floured surface, shape each piece of dough into a rope, 1/2" in diameter. Cut into 3" lengths. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.

    Bake 12-15 minutes, or until light golden brown. Immediately remove to racks to cool.

    In a small bowl, combine all frosting ingredients except nutmeg, adding enough half-and-half for desired spreading consistency; blend until smooth. Spread on top and sides of each cookie. If desired, mark frosting with tines of a fork to resemble bark. Sprinkle lightly with nutmeg. Allow frosting to set.

    (Freezes BEAUTIFULLY!!)

    They are very easy to make. I just made the difficulty level "medium" because the frosting part can be a bit tedious. I just drag the fork in an "S" curve along the top.
