Author Mommypotamus


  • linzer cookie cutter set
  • medium pot
  • tablespoon


  • 2 oz rum
  • 2 cups hot apple cider
  • 4 -8 tbsp butter (plus extra for garnish if desired)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (you can sub honey or rapadura/sucanat)
  • ΒΌ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch cloves
  • cinnamon stick or star anise (optional - for garnish)


  • Place apple cider, 4 tablespoons butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a medium pot and warm over medium heat. Once it reaches the temperature you prefer, remove from heat and add the rum. If you have an immersion blender, blend the mixture right in the pot. If you have a regular blender, transfer the mixture and blend until smooth. Taste and add more butter if desired, then serve. If you have some extra on hand, a cinnamon stick or whole star anise make a lovely garnish. I also add an extra pat of butter, sometimes made into special shapes with this linzer cookie cutter set.
