Recipe Corner: Oatmeal Bourbon Cookies

When you’re looking for a cookie with a nippy zip, consider these bourbon-spiked treats. Enjoy!

Makes 4 dozen
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1 package yellow cake mix
3 tablespoons bourbon
3 cups quick oats, uncooked
1 cup nuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar in mixer; add egg, water and 1/2 package of dry cake mix, blending thoroughly. Stir in remaining cake mix, bourbon, oats and nuts. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake exactly 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool slightly and remove from baking sheet.

These cookies will appear “not quite done” when you take them out of the oven, but they will continue cooking on baking sheet.
