Butter Rum Sandwich Triangles

Butter Rum Triangle Sandwiches

Cookie
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
1 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons light rum or milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons large grain sugar
Filling
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons light rum*
1 to 2 tablespoons  Half & Half
Combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar and pecan pieces in food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Cover; process 45-60 seconds or until pecans are very finely chopped. Combine sugar mixture, 1 cup butter, 2 tablespoons rum and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Divide dough in half; shape each half on lightly floured surface into 10-inch long roll. Place onto waxed paper. Flatten sides to form triangle, using waxed paper to help shape triangle. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

Heat oven to 375°F. Cut each log into 1/4-inch slices with sharp, serrated knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle triangles with large grain sugar. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, combine all filling ingredients except half & half in small bowl. Beat at low speed, adding enough half & half for desired spreading consistency. For each sandwich cookie, spread3/4 teaspoon filling on bottom of cookie. Top with second cookie, sugar-side up. Squeeze together gently.

*Substitute 1/4 teaspoon rum extract or same amount of dark rum.

-These cookies are better the next day.

- Use 2 rulers to shape triangle by pushing sides flat with rulers on opposite sides at the same time.
