Glazed Spritz Cookies
 
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar

2-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon rum extract
1 to 2 tablespoons hot water
Colored sugar crystals
 
     Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and nutmeg. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Place dough into a cookie press. Form desired shapes 1 inch apart on cookie sheets.
