Christmas Cookies Take 3: Nutmeg Sticks

I'm slightly cheating here because technically I haven't made these cookies yet. But the folks over at Faith & Family Live! are hosting a virtual cookie swap and I've got to get in on the action with these tasty little treats.

It's kind of a family tradition to make these cookies every Christmas so I hope I don't get put into exile for letting out this precious recipe. And if you need more of a reason to try this recipe I should also mention that I once won a Christmas baking contest with these little numbers. Yes, I assure you, they're that good.

1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. rum extract
1 egg
3 cups flour
1 tsp. nutmeg
dash salt

3 T. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. rum extract
1 1/2 - 2 cups powdered sugar
2 T. cream

Mix together dough and roll on log forms about 3 inches long and 1/2 inch in diameter. Roll in sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Frost when cool. Sprinkle with nutmeg.


  1. These sound yummy. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Advent!

  2. Hmm, I might have to try these. We're cooking this weekend and I'll for sure try the buckeyes - do they taste good or are they too "peanut-buttery?" What else you got? Keep 'em comin! :)

  3. I made these and served them at Jims b-day party yesterday,ymmm,thanks for sharing.
