Remember that time we added booze to cookies? Ya, me neither. And it’s high time we did something crazy around here. So let’s all eat Boozy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I haven’t had a cookie in ages. It’s really been unacceptable. There are few things in life that I require on a weekly basis, and cookies are one of them.
Also, FYI, I firmly believe in never showing up to someones house without some form of a gift. Cookies, wine, tequila or more cookies. Any of them will work. I know I certainly appreciate it when someone shows up to my house bearing gifts, so I like to reciprocate when I’m invited somewhere. So I thought, why not combine the booze and cookie situation and show up with Boozy Chocolate Chip Cookies? It seemed like the right thing to do. I’m fairly certain the recipient of these cookies will 100% agree. Plus, I satisfied my cookie craving. It’s really a win win on all accounts.
Side note: all the actual booze burns off in the baking process, so really these are perfect for any age Feel free to load up a kid with a few of these in their lunchbox too.
