I can't believe there are only 2 reviews for these cookies. They are amazing! Along with several other cookies I make for Christmas, I make them ahead of time and freeze them. They are the first cookie I reach for when I put out a platter.

These cookies are easy to bake and tasty. The rum extract is what makes the cookie. However, we felt the frosting was not needed and made the cookie too sweet.
