  • Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the bourbon. Stir in the flour mixture just until blended. Fold in pecans and chocolate chips. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Cool on the cookie sheet for a minute, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Took to a couples poker game on Derby Weekend. Everyone LOVED them & they were gone so fast I didn't even get one myself! Easy to make moist and a nice change from normal chocolate chip. Read More
