Dark chocolate cookies with drunken cherries

21 Nov

I have to give Kevin a lot of credit – I hadn’t ever really thought of soaking dried fruit in bourbon until I saw his Facebook posts, and well, it’s safe to say I’m completely addicted.

These are just a basic chocolate cookie, swapping out the cocoa powder for hershey’s special dark cocoa powder, and plus a little bourbon.

Only downside of these cookies is that they look a lot less delicious than they taste.


Dark chocolate cookies with drunken cherries

2 cups flour

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 1/2 sticks salted butter, at room temperature

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup dried cherries

3 tablespoons bourbon

1) In a small cup, soak the cherries in bourbon for 30-60 minutes.

2) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

3) Mix sugar and butter in a stand mixer, then stir in eggs and vanilla

4) In a separate bowl, combine baking soda, cocoa powder, and flour, then stir into the butter mixture

5) Mix in the cherries and bourbon

6) Cook for 8-10 minutes, and let cool before eating
