Wonderfully fragrant DELICIOUS cookie..This is Mother Bauer's Buttered-Rum Cookies w/Buttered Rum Cream Filling from Rose Levy Beranbaum's "Christmas Cookies" cookbook. The original recipe calls for blanched sliced almonds and only 1 2/3 cups of flour, 1 c unsalted butter for the cookies, and FILLING is: 3 T unsalted butter, 1 c powdered sugar, 3/4 tsp light rum, 2 tsp heavy cream. They're a roll-out cookie. I've posted this recipe before and some have experienced some problems with rolling the dough. I never did and I've made these several times.
These are very good! The taste is very delicate. I cut my cookies too thick. Next time I will make sure to cut on the thin side. We loved them! Thank you.
Excellent! Only made just under 3 dozen, but were wonderfully buttery and elegant looking.
