Y’ALL THESE COOKIES. These cookies are your grown up dreams come true! They have everything, loads of bourbon, homemade caramel sauce, vanilla, almond, and more spice than the spice girls themselves! ALSO, if I ever get to be a Spice Girl I would for sure be Bourbon Spice.
I wanted to create a cookie that tasted like a glass of bourbon, something caramel-y, vanilla-y, and that packed a bit of heat. And these definitely do that and you get the added bonus of not getting a headache if you eat 52.
There is a homemade caramel sauce that goes into these, but don’t think that makes them hard to make. They are super easy and all the caramel sauce goes into the cookies, so no leftovers that you need to deal with.
This is also a super wet dough since it has so much caramel sauce in it, so it does need to be chilled in the fridge so that they don’t spread in the oven to make huge giant discs. Anywhere from 1 hour to overnight would do the trick.
