Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Beat butter with sugar until very light and fluffy. Beat in sour cream, egg yolk, rum extract and nutmeg until well combined. Stir flour with baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Gradually blend into butter mixture on low speed.
  3. Transfer dough to a cookie press. Press the dough onto ungreased, baking sheets. Decorate as desired.
  4. Bake, in batches, for 6 to 8 minutes or until just pale golden on bottom. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet; transfer to a rack to cool completely.


Tips:

  • If the dough sticks to the cookie press, to help it release, chill the baking sheets and be sure not to grease or line with parchment paper.
  • For those without a cookie press, reduce the flour by 1/2 cup (125 mL) and use a piping bag fitted with a wide star tip. Pipe loonie-sized mounds, decorate and bake as directed above.
  • Replace the rum extract with vanilla and replace the nutmeg with 2 tsp (10 mL) finely grated orange zest for an orange scented spritz.
  • Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
