Frosted Nutmeg Log Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling
Been making these for over thirty years . My recipe calls for Brandy extract which is very hard to find now.
I want to make these cookies, but I only have white rum. Can that be substituted for the rum extract that is called for in the recipe. If so, would the amounts still be the same?
I am sure this was my fault as opposed to the recipe. I made these. The cookies tasted good, but spread when I baked them. I used imitation rum flavoring in the frosting, and it tasted horrible. Any suggestions?
I also felt the rum extract over powered the nutmeg. I plan to decrease the amount next time I make them. I have another nutmeg log recipe and the taste of the nutmeg is better and lives up to the name of the cookie. One recipient swore there was "liquor" in my cookies--that says strong to me. Perhaps the cookie should be called rum logs instead of nutmeg logs.
These cookies surpassed my exspectations. My cookies flattened out more than I wanted so next time I think I will not flatten before baking. I loved the rum frosting 2 tsp was perfect! Cant have too much rum can you? My husband thought these tasted like eggnog, and I guess they did a little, but so very tasty.
These cookies are excellent. After dividing dough into 3 portions, I wrapped in saran wrap & put in fridge for a hour. The dough was very easy to work with. After I made the frosting with 2 tsp rum extract, I thought next time I should cut back on it as I found it strong tasting, but next day, it had mellowed out & was perfect.
These cookies were amazing! Definitely one of my favorites. I didn't have nutmeg on hand so i used a pumpkin spice mix and sprinkled cinnamon on the top of them. Delicious!
These were very easy to make, and true to quantity. The recipe made exactly 36 cookies. I followed the recipe exactly and didn't have a problem rolling them, although I did flour my hands first. These were a hit at our family Christmas party.

We use 3 c flour in our recipe and don't have problems with them flattening! Also agree on refrigerating, makes it easier to roll and not so sticky!
