Hot Buttered Rum Cookies recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

What happens when you have leftover Hot Buttered Rum mix in the refrigerator and you combine that with a craving for cookies? You wind up with rich toffee and spice flavors in a crisp and chewy cookie.

This is an incredibly spiced holiday cookie that is very reminiscent of a gingersnap in flavor.

Servings: 2 dozen


  • 3/4 cup hot buttered rum mix softened
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or rum extract, if you have it
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Cream together the rum mix, egg and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix to thoroughly combine. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Scoop tablespoon size portions of the mixture and roll into balls. Place on a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes, just until the cookies look slightly cracked across the top. They should still be soft when they are removed from the oven. Let cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack. Enjoy!

    This morning, even here in FL, there's a chill in the air. One of these cookies would be a perfect breakfast accessory.

    Maybe tomorrow's breakfast will be the day.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! For the second year in the row, I have made this recipe to use up some odds and ins. Crisp and chewy, they do spread quite a bit. In the future, I would increase the flour.5 stars
