Bourbon Cookies

This year I was introduced to a new cookie and folks, I’m in love.  I’m generally in love with all things bourbon anyway, but then these dang cookies came along and, well let’s just say, I’ll need to let some seems out.

  1. 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  2. 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  3. 1/2 cup sugar
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 2 tablespoons Bourbon (I used Wild Turkey)
  6. 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  8. 1 teaspoon fine salt
  1. Evenly position 2 racks in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone sheets.
  2. Put the butter in a microwave safe bowl, cover and microwave on medium power until melted. (Alternatively melt in a small saucepan.) Cool slightly. Whisk the sugars, eggs, butter and bourbon in a large bowl until smooth.
  3. Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon; take care not to over mix.
  4. Scoop teaspoons of the dough onto the prepared pans. Space the cookies about 2-inches apart on the pans. Bake, until golden, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes, depending on how chewy or crunchy you like your cookies. Transfer hot cookies with a spatula to a rack to cool. Serve.
  5. Store cookies in a tightly sealed container for up to 5 days.
  1. 1 cup powdered sugar
  2. 1/2 teaspoon Bourbon
  3. 1-2 tablespoons milk
  4. Mix ingredients and spoon over (drizzle) cookies or frost with knife.

I do have cookies installed on my site, it’s to help me collect stats about visitors and I get super excited when I see people visiting from all over the world. Lastly, I do use affiliated links which means that I may get advertising fees by advertising and linking to some stores on line (basically, I can receive commissions on some purchases you make when you arrive at some vendors sites after clicking on a link on one of my sites). This doesn’t change anything for you since the price remains the same.
