When I checked the calendar and realized Father's Day was bearing down on us, I knew exactly what I was going to bake up for my dad this year. Whiskey chocolate chip cookies are fast becoming my go-to dessert when I have to whip something up fast, especially when my miniature chef wants to be involved.
I happened on them by accident, to be honest. I've always had a thing for chocolate chip cookies, but after dragging my kid to the Jack Daniel's distillery in the spring as part of a family road trip, I needed to find a way to actually let her have some ... you know, in a LEGAL way! And I've been playing with recipes ever since!
The alcohol cooks off, but you are left with a richness to the standard cookie that is hard to resist:
