I've been making this recipe for about 3 or 4 years now with one exception. Instead of making a glaze I allow the cookies to cool then roll them in powdered sugar only because the glaze is messy and takes too much time to apply and let cool. I can never make enough to keep on the plate!! Read More

I made these cookies for a holiday cookie exchange & they were a big hit. They are a shortbread type cookie with the rum glaze. Very good & fairly easy. I used real rum instead of extract & I only had half the amount of butter so I did half butter & half coconut oil. It worked great. It may have changed the consistency a bit because I didn't need to roll into a ball I just made "patties" with my hands & placed them on an un greased cookie sheet which made wonderful cookies.
