Last night I was mixing up a large batch of Christmas cookies, for my little girls pre-school party, using a recipe for vanilla wafers. As I was kneading the dough I noticed that my bottle of ETL was watching from across the room. That's when I got the idea that I should make the last dozen a little extra special. Two pours for me, one for the batter, a little more kneading and it was off to the oven. The dough got a bit slimy with that much bourbon so I chilled the dough for 1/2hr before shaping the it into 1" balls.
To make a long story short they came out great. You could easily discern the bourbon flavor which was very enjoyable and not overpowering and they made a good breakfast snack with coffee this morning. I probably should have put them aside. By the time I got home from work my wife and little kid polished off the rest without realizing there special quality.
Bourbon cookies...good for the whole family.
