  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon rum extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • Baking cocoa


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in eggs and extracts. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
  2. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets; flatten slightly with bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake until edges begin to brown slightly, 12-14 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  3. For filling, in a large bowl, beat mascarpone cheese and butter until smooth. In a small bowl, dissolve instant coffee in vanilla; beat into mascarpone mixture. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Pipe or spread filling on bottoms of half the cookies; cover with remaining cookies. Dust cookies with cocoa. Store in the refrigerator.
