Today is day 11 of 15 Days of Holiday Sweets! This Whiskey Sour Cookies Recipe came about due to a challenge from Maker’s Mark! They sent a number of bloggers a lovely #boozybaking package, and then challenged us to come with a recipe based upon a classic cocktail.

Well, the Whiskey Sour Cocktail is one of my all time favorite cocktails, so it was a no-brainer for me to try and replicate the sweet-tart taste of a whiskey sour into a cookie. And, I succeeded! It took me a number of tries, but this final recipe does taste like a whiskey sour. I made the finished product several times just to be sure the recipe really did work. It does.

If you enjoy the taste of a whiskey sour, give this cookie recipe a try!

A great big thank-you to Maker’s Mark for not only the Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon used to produce these unique cookies, but for the challenge itself. This is not something I would have tried on my own, and yet the cookies were so successful, I will be making them again very soon.
