Description

This Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is easy to make, soft and chewy, and flavored with the most delicious hint of bourbon.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, store-bought or homemade
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips)

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to cream together the softened butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add the egg, bourbon and vanilla extract, and beat on medium-low speed for another minute until combined.  Add in the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt, and beat on medium-low speed until combined. Fold in (stir in) the chocolate chunks/chips by hand until just combined.
  2. Use a large cookie scoop (equivalent to 3 tablespoons) or a spoon to shape the dough into balls, and place them on a large plate. Cover with plastic wrap and chill the dough balls for at least 2 hours, for best results.  (You can bake them after less chilling time, but they will be more flat.)
  3. When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place chilled dough balls at least 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. (Or a baking sheet that has been covered with a Silpat, or greased with cooking spray.)
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are just set and the cookies are slightly golden on top.  (The centers may look ever-so-slightly undercooked.) Cool cookies on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve immediately or store in a sealed container for up to 1 week. You can also freeze the cookies for up to 3-4 months.
