Chocolate Chips Cookies with Tennessee Whiskey

Jamie Justice Yost

"Here in Tennessee, we would put whiskey in our scrambled eggs if it was socially acceptable. Luckily, whiskey in your cookies is both acceptable and tasty! Get a glass of milk (or whiskey) to have with cookies."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together into a bowl.
  3. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended; beat in the second egg. Add whiskey and vanilla extract; beat until smooth.
  4. Mix flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until just incorporated; fold in chocolate chips. Form dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet, 1 to 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, 9 to 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Feel free to add more flour if dough is a bit runny (the whiskey will do that sometimes!)
  • Wetting your hands with cold water will help form the balls of dough and make for nicely-shaped cookies.

We've tried many many cookie recipes, this one gets repeated by request! I double the amount of bourbon though ;)

These are awesome. I made as written with no changes. Oh wait, just one change and that was to the whisky. From one tablespoon to two tablespoon. I also added pecans, but again that just additio...

This was a nice spin on regular chocolate chip cookies. I turned them into Kentucky cookies instead of Tennessee since I used the Jim Beam that I had on hand. Based on the site reviews, I used...
