Bourbon. Toffee. Brown Butter. Chocolate. Cookies.
They’re guaranteed to raise a smile, so let me introduce you to:
the best damn cookie you will ever have!
Never have I ever had a brown butter cookie and let me tell you one thing… I’ve been missing out. Who would have thought a simple method of cooking butter could change the very foundation of the cookie as we know it. Nutty, dark, smokey. That’s what brown butter adds to the cookie. Sounds kind of like a bar in the 90’s, huh? But they need something else in order for them to have the full on neon light ambiance. Bourbon.
Oh and a little toffee and chocolate for good measure.
When you take a bite of these cookies you get a little punch of bourbon followed by sweet sugar and chocolate with a finish of salty toffee and nutty notes.
They’re incredible, flavorful, and bold!
So, go! Be bold! Take a chance on these cookies!
You won’t be sorry.
I’m pretty excited to be sharing these cookies with my family this Christmas and wanted to get the recipe out in time so you could share it with yours. After all, the holidays are about sharing and family and enjoying the simple things in life, like cookies. For most of us, Christmas means kicking your feet up for a day with a glass of your favorite spirits, playing games, and making memories with your loved ones. That is my Christmas wish for all of you.
This recipe was inspired by and in honor of my Uncle Jake, for his love of Bourbon and because I can always count on him to bail me out. So here’s to you, Uncle Jake, thank you.
