Not your usual Christmas Cookies

These are christmas cookies...
Or so I think they should be, they are found in christmas cookie collecttion here in Germany, they are just a lot less common than say, the Vanille Girpferl. I think they have just as much of a right to be there as the Vanille Gipferl, andthey shouldn't be discriminated just because they have a little rum in them. Not all cookie were made for children, they don't all have to be super sweet and covered in sprinkle. The simple, tasty ones are just as good. And this recipe is as simple as it gets. By the way make these cookies small because rum makes them rise a bit.
Rum Cookies:

  • 60g butter
  • 50g powdered sugar
  • 40g flour
  • 60g cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon (or more) of rum
Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F
1. Cream together the butter and sugar.

2. Add the egg, beat until well combined then add the flour,cornflour and rum.

3. Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
4. Roll the dough into small balls and use a fork to even them out. 

Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown around the edges.
Give these cookies a try, they really deserve a chance.
