Eggnog and rum give this spritz cookie a unique flavor that is enhanced by the rum glaze.


  • For the cookie:
  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • optional food coloring

  • For the glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1/4 teaspoon rum extract


  • Make the cookies:
  • Heat oven to 400F. In large mixer bowl combine sugar, butter, egg, salt, spices, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour and a few drops of optional food coloring, if using. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed, 2 to 3 minutes. If dough is too soft, cover and refrigerate until firm enough to form cookies, 30 to 45 minutes. Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
  • Make the glaze:
  • In a small bowl stir together powdered sugar, butter, water, and rum extract until smooth. Add powdered sugar if necessary to achieve desired consistency. Brush, drizzle or pipe over cooled cookies.

These cookies are delicious and recipe was easy to follow. The rum extract and nutmeg definitely give the cookies an eggnog taste!

I have made spritz cookies for over 25 years and what I have noticed is that the dough consistency is different every time depending on the temp/humidity of your home. Also you can't use a non stick pan or parchment paper. they need to stick a little to the pan or the press will not let them go. You HAVE to use real butter never margarine, fresh graded nutmeg, quality vanilla, fresh cinnamon, rum, fresh flour, ALL these things make a huge difference in the final product. There IS a difference in taste of fresh, properly stored butter and flour too. But if you have never tasted the difference, then you will not be able to tell. For example: A close family relative and I use the exact same recipe for spritz cookies each year. Hers, I can barley eat they taste so bad. We use totally different quality and brands of products.
