Spike the Cookies: Baking with Bourbon Part 2

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Once a month when I attend my wine club meetings, the hubs gathers with his Bourbon Club. This month was Brady’s turn to “host” at my parents house (where most members live), so I decided to do some cooking with bourbon.

Last time Brady hosted, I made Maker’s Mark cupcakes. This time, I tried a different spin with another Maker’s Mark recipe for Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The recipe, found here, was fairly easy! The “secret” ingredient was a bit tricky. Basically you cook the bacon, save the grease and then chill it until it turns into a gel-like substance. I never said that these were healthy ; )

I can't say that the cookies had rave reviews, but most that tried them said that they were good!
