Chocolate Chips Cookies with Tennessee Whiskey

Rated as 4.95 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  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.
