Crown Royal Chocolate Cookies

Spice up the ordinary cookies with a bit of Whiskey. If you don’t have Crown Royal you can substitute it for a whiskey you prefer or have on hand.  When the cookies bake, the liquor will evaporate, but don’t worry,  you will still taste the great flavor of it.

When making these cookies, the dough will been moist and sticky, but don’t add more flour, it will make the cookies more like a cake consistency then what they should be. When forming the dough into balls use white sugar on your hands to help with the stickiness, rather then flour or powdered sugar.

    1. Heather, they do come out thicker then a normal cookie. You can always try backing for only 10 minutes then it wont harden as much and will be a softer cookie. Let me know how that works out 🙂

    1. I actually hadn’t ever thought of doing that before. I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to. If you try it let me know how it turns out for you. 🙂

    2. Hey Mac, did you try the 13 x 11 pan for this recipe? I’m really wanting to try it, but didn’t want to waste the Crown if someone else had already given it a try. 🙂

  1. You could also drop the cooking temperature down to 350 or even 325 and add on a few extra minutes of cooking time.

  2. My husband loved the cookies but isnt a fan of chocolate. I was wondering if it could be made with a white chocolate baking bark. And if so would it be the same amount as the cocoa?
