Rum Walnut Sugar Cookies

1 pkg. Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie pouch ($.40)
6 T. margarine ($.20)
1 T. liquid coffee creamer (free after coupon)
1 egg ($.05)
1/2 C. walnuts, chopped ($.35)
1/2 tsp. rum extract or flavoring ($.25)

In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients and mix until a soft dough forms.

Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes, remove, and store in an airtight container.

Yields = 30 cookies
Cost: $1.25 or $.05 per cookie

For a different twist:

1. Use almond instead of rum extract and swap out almonds for the walnuts.

2. Use orange extract in place of rum, add 1 T. orange zest and fold in 1/2 C. white chocolate chips in place of the walnuts.

3. Add pecans in place of the walnuts and butter extract in place of the rum flavoring.
