These little honeys melt in your mouth and have a wonderful, light rum flavoring making them extra special. They're a favorite at Christmas time in our family.
- In medium mixing bowl, cream butter until fluffy and gradually add the powdered sugar and salt. Mix thoroughly, and gradually add the cornstarch and flour and blend well.
- Form the dough into bite-sized balls, slightly flattening the top. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are golden on the bottom. Cool completely.
- While the cookies cool, make the frosting. In a small bowl, combine the butter, confectioners' sugar, rum extract, and milk until creamy. Ice the cookies when they are completely cooled. I usually pipe the frosting on top, and then sprinkle with a few Christmas decors. Store in tins, separated in layers by plastic wrap.
