These are fantastic like eggnog in a cookie! My grandmother used to make these with this variation: Don't color the icing. After frosting the cookie score lengthwise with fork tines then sprinkle with nutmeg. Meant to look like snow-covered bark. Bigger kids can help frost and roll the logs.
Would give these cookies 10 stars if I could. Just WONDERFUL! I did use the nutmeg sprinkle on top (like the first reviewer) instead of the food coloring. I had 14 people over for Christmas Eve and over a dozen different kinds of Christmas cookies (had help) and this one EVERYONE raved about. A definate keeper. Thanks Carol
PLEASE do not color the icing! This cookie is meant to LOOK like a LOG; thus score the icing with fork tines and sprinkle with nutmeg. Icing can't be too thin or you won't accomplish the look of rough bark. I ship these off to my brother and sister every Christmas as this cookie has been a family tradition. It has carried over to MY children. This is one of two cookies REQUIRED at Christmas. No rum in mine and I actually use half unsalted butter half margarine which gives me the taste and texture I want.
OMG! This cookie is so simple I didn't even have to make a trip to the store for anything. And WOW! These cookies with the icing have the perfect taste for Christmas. I'm taking them for dinner on Christmas Eve and I should wait to get feedback before reviewing but it doesn't matter what anyone else tells me I'm making these cookies again and again.
These were great - I had just returned from St Lucia and wanted to make something using the fresh nutmeg I brought back. I used rum (also from St Lucia) instead of rum extract. I rolled them into logs and then put the ends together to make rings.
My family has been making these cookies for Christmas for over 40 years. Only we don't dye the frosting and we run a fork through the frosting and sprinkle with nutmeg. It gives it the appearance of a log and tastes spectacular! They are my absolute favorites!
I have made these a few times over the course of 35 years following a recipe that had the wrong amount of butter. They came out hard as a brick! I made these with the correct amount of butter and they were delicious and soft! The right texture absolutely perfect! I will make these again and again!
