Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine butter, sugar, vanilla, rum in the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment.

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out batter and roll dough, with your hands, into 3 inch logs.
Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes.
Cool on wire rack completely, then frost.

Frosting:
Combine the butter, vanilla, and rum in the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment or in a medium bowl with a hand mixer.
Slowly add in the powdered sugar.
Add the heavy cream, 1 T. at a time, until desired spreadable consistency.
Spread a small amount on cookie, working with only a few at a time so it doesn't dry too fast, then sprinkle on nutmeg.
