Instructions
To make the cookies:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Add the butter and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and mix until the sugar and butter are mixed - they do not have to be creamed. Add the vanilla, egg, and run extract and mix to incorporate.
  3. Add the flour and nutmeg and mix until the dry ingredients are completely combined.
  4. Roll portions of the dough in to log shapes - 3 inches long and 1/2 inch thick. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets and bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.
To make the frosting:
  1. Add the butter, sugar, vanilla, milk, and rum extract to a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Frost the cookies and use a fork to create lines in the icing then sprinkle with nutmeg.

      Hi Juliana,
      We haven’t tried using another type of flour in this recipe, but you should be able to substitute All Purpose Flour in the recipe with good results.
