Cookies, pies, and all the other baked goods you can think of. It’s that time of year. Not that you can’t bake year ’round, but there’s something cozy about baking in the fall and through the holidays.
Enter today’s recipe: Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Cookies (and cookie dough) are my weakness. Besides oatmeal raisin, I really haven’t found one I don’t like, and you can’t go wrong with the classic chocolate chip cookie. But you know what makes that classic even better? Adding bourbon.
Soft + chewy + chocolatey with the perfect hint of bourbon. Eat them warm, eat them cool, eat them with ice cream or hot chocolate or a glass of whiskey. Either way, I guarantee you will love them.
