1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 LAND O LAKES® All-Natural Egg

2 tablespoons whipping cream or milk

1 teaspoon rum extract

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1/2 cup powdered sugar

2 teaspoons LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened

2 teaspoons light corn syrup

1/4 teaspoon rum extract

3 to 5 tablespoons water

Decorator sugars, dragées or frosting, as desired


  1. Combine 1 cup butter and sugar in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, whipping cream, 1 teaspoon rum extract and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add all remaining cookie ingredients. Beat until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate until firm (2 to 3 hours).
  3. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/4-inch snowflake-shaped cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire cooling rack. Cool completely.
  4. Combine powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons butter, corn syrup and 1/4 teaspoon rum extract in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, adding enough water for desired glazing consistency.
  5. Place wire cooling rack with cookies over waxed paper. Brush glaze over cookies; decorate as desired. Let stand until set.
