Irish Coffee Cookies
Soft, chewy coffee cookies with a subtle hint of whiskey flavor. Plan ahead, as these require a bit of refrigeration time.
Use any kind of whiskey you prefer here. Since this recipe uses quite a bit to achieve a rather subtle whiskey flavor, I recommend a brand that you enjoy drinking, but doesn't break the bank. Save the good stuff for a real Irish coffee to serve alongside these cookies!
Light brown sugar works just fine in place of the dark. You can also use instant coffee powder in place of the espresso--but the coffee flavor may not be as strong.
These cookies are delicious right out of the oven, but the flavors really come through better once they are completely cool--and may even be better the next day.
