Hot Toddy Cookies!!!

I dreamed about it...and now they're a reality.

Hot Toddy cookies!

I apparently won't stop until I turn every cocktail into a cookie.  It all started when I found some awesome cookie recipes on, of all places, a vegan blog! It's called "Have Cake Will Travel..." and is beautifully done.

There I found such wonders as Whiskey, Tequila, and Double Chocolate Stout Cookies.

So I took (and tweaked) the base recipe...the alcoholic inspiration, and ran with it!  I also de-veganized them.

4 T Whiskey
1 T Lemon Juice
1 t Lemon Zest
3 T Golden Raisins
1/2 c Sugar
1 c all purpose flour
1/2 t Baking Powder
1/4 t Sea Salt
1/4 t Ground Cloves
2 t Cornstarch
3 T Canola Oil
3 T Milk

Soak raisins in the whiskey for at least an hour. I need to invest in some Bourbon for these, I think.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine dry ingredients and mix well.  Add whiskey/raisin mix and remaining wet ingredients...mix well. Drop onto a cookie sheet (I used a cookie scoop) covered with unbleached parchment paper and press (they wont spread out in the oven). Bake for 18 minutes.

Makes a little over a dozen cookies :)

*Next time I'm going to replace the sugar with honey and maybe try melted butter instead of canola oil.
