3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups cold butter, cubed
2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons 2% milk
Food coloring of your choice, optional
Colored edible glitter and nonpareils

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water and extracts until mixture forms a ball.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with floured cookie cutters. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Bake at 325 for 15-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
For icing, in a large bowl, whisk the confectioners' sugar and milk. Divide into small bowls; tint with food coloring if desired. Gently spread over cookies. Decorate as desired. Yield- about 3 dozen.
