This was a fun cookie to make and eat. I really enjoyed the process and they were not difficult at all. I think these would be especially fun around Christmas time, but if I were to do that I would hunt down the candied orange (I made do without this time around because I didn't see it at my grocery) as I bet that would add a nice festive touch. What really surprised me is how much you could taste the rum in the cookies. My husband will love that. He hasn't tasted them yet, but I know he will love the flavor combination. He isn't much of a drinker, but he does love a good boozy dessert. My kids however, didn't care for the adult taste of these cookies. And even though I halved the recipe, it still made a lot of cookies considering the kids won't eat them.
