Every now and then I like to post a recipe that needs few words. This would be one of them.
I modified my coconut oil chocolate chip cookie recipe in honor of the Kentucky Derby. While in the oven, you will smell the wonderful aroma of coconut and bourbon blending together. Once cooled, they become a bourbon ball, cookie and pecan pie in one.
This year leave the classic Run for the Roses pie to someone else. Get your Derby Day dessert with these cookies!
Bourbon, Chocolate Chip, Pecan Cookies
Makes: About 2 dozen
1 cup Demerara sugar
1 large egg
2 tbsp Kentucky bourbon
1 ¼ cups white whole wheat flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp fine ground sea salt
½ cup dark chocolate chips
½ cup raw pecans, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, combine the coconut oil and sugar. Mix on medium-high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until well blended. Mix in the egg and then add the bourbon.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixing bowl, keeping the mixer on low. Turn to medium and mix until everything is incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.
Scoop by the tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet and gently flatten each cookie. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are browned and cookies are firm. Allow to cool on the pan for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
