Rum Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon rum or rum extract
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons grated orange peel


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Into large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add gingersnap crumbs, ginger, cinnamon and 2 1/4 teaspoons orange peel. (Your clean hands will work best to fully combine all the ingredients.)
  • 3
    Shape dough into about 2-inch balls; roll in brown sugar, making sure to evenly coat. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 4
    Bake about 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool.
  • 5
    While cookies are cooling, in medium bowl, stir together Rum Glaze ingredients until thick and smooth. If needed, add a little water for drizzling consistency. Use fork to drizzle glaze over cooled cookies.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To crush the gingersnap cookies, use a food processor or blender. Or even a zipper-topped plastic bag and a rolling pin works. Get them as fine as possible.
