Boozy Dessert Recipes
I like when you make a recipe that has some sort of booze in it and you can actually taste the booze. Some recipes can stand to be super boozy, some can’t.
These Jameson Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are sort of in between, because you can definitely pick up the whiskey flavor but it’s still sweet enough to be a cookie.
St. Patrick’s Day isn’t really a holiday that we celebrate in a big way, but we do make Crock Pot Corned Beef or a version of a corned beef dinner like these Irish Carnitas, and there’s definitely a little bit of whiskey going on.
This cookie recipe is also really easy to make, I really don’t think you can mess them up at all! One thing I like about this recipe is that you melt the butter instead of using softened butter at room temperature.
No worrying that you forgot to take the butter out the night before.
We’ve learned a couple things about baking cookies from our friend who’s a legit cookie expert. First is that you have to chill the dough before you bake them to help the cookies not flatten out so much.
The other is more of a presentation thing. Once you get the cookies portioned out on the baking sheet, press a few extra chocolate chips on top so that they look picture perfect when they come out of the oven.
Since there is a good amount of whiskey is in this cookie dough recipe, licking the bowl after making these cookies was extra fun.
The booze would kill all that salmonella right?
I say yes.
When they come out of the oven let them cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack. Ok, and that’s the other thing we learned from our cookie expert friend, to not over bake your cookies.
They come out when they look like they might not be done but then after they cool they look like this.
This chocolate chip cookie recipe makes almost three dozen cookies so there’s definitely enough if you need to bring them to a party – just don’t forget to grab the whiskey!

- Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well, then add the vanilla and mint extracts. (If you are adding the food coloring do it in this step too)
- With the mixer on low, slowly add in the mixed dry ingredients about a cup at a time until just mixed together.
- Fold the chocolate chips into the dough, then refrigerate for an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray and scoop out the cookies dough using a 1 1/2 tablespoon scooper. (golf ball sized)
- Bake for 9-10 minutes, just until the bottom edge browns and remove from the oven.
- Let cool on a cooling rack for 10-15 minutes.
3 cups of flour will give you a thicker, fluffier, cake like cookie but still very moist if you follow the baking time. If you want a thinner, chewier, crispy cookie then reduce the flour to 2 1/4 cups.
