No pretty pictures this morning but I wanted to share this recipe. I have had this recipe since 1989 when a co-worker brought them to a company potluck. I think it is the nutmeg that makes them so special. I'm kind of a nut over nutmeg. I even have a Hungarian Meatball Recipe that calls for some nutmeg! Mmm, that and ginger! Anyway, I'm through drooling. Here is the recipe.
NutMeg Logs with Frosting
3 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
Add to butter and sugar mixutre, 1 egg, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 teaspoons rum flavoring. Mix.
Now combine flour mix and butter mix. Roll dough into 3" wide log, cut into 1/2" by 3" little logs.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet -Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
3 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon rum flavoring
2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, alternating with 2 tablespoons milk.
After frosting, but before the frosting hardens, rake with a fork and sprinkle with nutmeg.
Yummy! I hope you find time for some holiday cooking!
