Here is a recipe submitted by Mrs T.,  mother of one of the Big Chillers (and thus, mother to all) and a world renowned baker of great cookies, pies and cakes.  This is no exaggeration as Mrs. T, as a  "Navy wife," has definitely lived and baked 'around the world.'   Today she leads an active life in Florida and continues to bake for her kids when they visit.  As you can see there is no photograph here which means Kathleen and I will have to plan a trip down to Florida to take one.  See you soon, Mrs. T!

 

"Mrs. T's"  Nutmeg Logs

  

These cookies have been served to the Tahamont Kiddies and friends since 1971. They seemed to have survived well (the kids that is).  Here goes: 

1 c soft butter, 2 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp rum (rum flavoring is stronger than rum from the liquor store),    c sugar, 1 egg, 3 c flour, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/4/ tsp salt (I never salt anything, as Mr. T had high blood pressure)  Cream butter with flavorings, gradually beat in the sugar. Blend in egg. Sift flour, 1 tsp nutmeg and salt; add to butter mixture and mix well. Shape pieces of dough on sugared board into long rolls 1/2 in diameter. Cut into 3 lengths, place on buttered cookie sheets. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) 12-15 min. You can tell if the cookies are done as the bottom will be lightly browned. The top is pale. Cool. Spread frosting on top and sides of cookies; drag tines of a fork over the frosting. Sprinkle with grated nutmeg while frosting is still moist. Let air dry before putting in cookie container.  FROSTING; Cream 1/3 c butter with 1 tsp vanilla and 2 tsp rum. Blend in 2 c sifted 10x sugar and 2 tblsp light cream. Beat until creamy and smooth. Enjoy. As you can tell I take all calories out of my recipes before serving.

Under Construction

Nothing like grilling out, and you can't beat grilling out on a sailboat!  Here I am doing my famous marinated chicken grill on the stern of the Orion.
