Egg Nog Logs

1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
3 c. flour
1 t. ground nutmeg
1/4 t. salt
2 t. vanilla extract
1 t. rum extract

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Combine the flour, nutmeg and salt. Gradually add creamed mixture and mix well.

Divide dough in to 10 equal portions. Roll each into a 15 inch log. Cut each log into five 3 inch pieces. Place on lightly greased baking sheets (or the baking world's greatest invention: the DeMarle Silpat). Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.

Vanilla Frosting:

1/4 c. butter, softened
2 c. confectioners sugar
5 t. milk
1 t. vanilla extract
3/4 c. finely chopped pecans

In a small mixing bowl, beat the butter, confectioners sugar, milk and extract until smooth. Dip ends of cookies in frosting then in pecans. Place on waxed paper (or the baking world's greatest invention: the DeMarle Silpat) until set. Store in airtight container.
