Fruitcake-Filled Icebox Cookies
cup butter, softened
cup superfine sugar
teaspoons rum extract or vanilla
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
loaf (16 oz) fruitcake
cups finely chopped pecans or walnuts
In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and rum extract. On medium-low speed, beat in flour and salt until blended. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Cut fruitcake lengthwise in half. Shape each portion into 10 1/2-inch log on cooking parchment paper. Divide cookie dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough into 11x9-inch rectangle. Place 1 fruitcake log on long edge of 1 dough rectangle; roll up jelly-roll fashion, starting from long side. Coat generously with nuts. Repeat with second portion of fruitcake and dough. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F. Unwrap dough; cut into 1/4-inch slices. On ungreased cookie sheets, place slices 3 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
Make your own superfine sugar by processing granulated sugar in a food processor for 1 or 2 minutes.
