This is a tale of my night, pieced together from my friends, and the contents of my counter this morning.
Last night, I was a great many things; sober not among them.
I admit, I did some drinking. I had had a very bad day. My fiancé was upset with me, and I was feeling like when I should have been ecstatic. Not fun.
I had used this recipe before, and I enjoyed the cookies, but I'm not much of a reviewer. Last night, however, was bake night. I used to work in a bakery, and ever since I had to quit (surgery), I have had some friends over once a month for bake night. When my friends arrived, I suddenly realized what night it was. I don't remember much of the night, but this recipe was up, and I clearly used it, so here is what I know:
A glaze drizzle was involved. I know that I used straight cream at first. Must have had to thin it out. I tasted what was left in the fridge and dark rum is the prime suspect.
Chocolate and beer were added. Friend saw me add beer; I can't imagine adding enough to make the cookies as dark as they turned out.
Currants instead of raisins. That's for sure.
There's Irish cream in either the glaze or cookies; apparently I poured myself a glass and I HATE Irish cream, but will never waste booze.
LOTS of spice. They are almost hot from the cinnamon.
On my counter are the following: apricot nectar, pineapple juice, Coke, pear vodka, tequila, rum, and Like a Sir e-juice. Any or all of them may have made it into the cookies. Delicious, though.
