Our friend Andy moves in to his new place and he is greeted with a box of Bourbon Cookies. Watch the video below and then follow the recipe below it.
Mary’s Bourbon Currant Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
1/2 cups of bourbon
1/2 cup dried currants
4 tablespoons heavy cream
Soak currants in bourbon
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar until smooth and well combined. Add more bourbon to the currant/bourbon mixture, to make 1/2 cup (this will depend on how long you let the currants soak). Add to to the butter sugar mixture along with 1 egg and 3 cups flour. Mix until well combined.
2.) Roll out dough on a lightly floured work surface to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes, or drop by the tablespoon full onto lined cookie sheet (parchment or silpat work the best)
3.) Whisk together remaining egg and cream in a small bowl. Brush cookies with egg wash.
4.) Bake until pale golden brown, about 13-15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
5.) enjoy 🙂
