Chocolate Chips Cookies with Tennessee Whiskey

Recipe by  

"Here in Tennessee, we would put whiskey in our scrambled eggs if it was socially acceptable. Luckily, whiskey in your cookies is both acceptable and tasty! Get a glass of milk (or whiskey) to have with cookies."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together into a bowl.
  3. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended; beat in the second egg. Add whiskey and vanilla extract; beat until smooth.
  4. Mix flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until just incorporated; fold in chocolate chips. Form dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet, 1 to 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, 9 to 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Feel free to add more flour if dough is a bit runny (the whiskey will do that sometimes!)
  • Wetting your hands with cold water will help form the balls of dough and make for nicely-shaped cookies.

Before I even asked him for his opinion, Hubs voluntarily remarked, "These are the best chocolate chip cookies I ever ate." What?! I wasn't EVEN prepared for that! Do you know how many different kinds of chocolate chip cookies I've made over the years? Not to mention my standby favorite? Subsequent "m'mmms" and "yummy" reinforced that review. Now in all fairness, when I first told him I was considering making chocolate chip cookies with whiskey in them, he was all over that! Oh yeah, whiskey in cookies! When I tasted them I thought ok, you're going to be disappointed because you can't even taste any whiskey in them (Hubs insists you do, "a little bit"). He and I tend to differ in what we consider a good chocolate chip cookie (I like mine sort of dry and crunchy) so we'll use his 5-star review: He says he doesn't know why, it's difficult to describe - his brain and his taste buds just tell him these are the best. The whiskey, he said four cookies later, somehow balances out the sweetness and makes them interesting. I'm happy to be the first to review these Nashville Nosher, and Hubs thanks you for the best chocolate chip cookie he ever ate.
