Sazerac Cooler Cookies


To save a bit of cash on Christmas gifts, to get back to making things from scratch in the kitchen, to warm up the house during the chilly winter, to make stuff I personally thought I'd enjoy... Those were just some of the reasons I decided to try making Sazerac Cooler Cookies.

 The recipe seemed simple enough.  You have your wet you and your dry.

Cream the butter and sugar along with the elements that make up one of my favorite cocktails.  Once it's thoroughly combined, stir in the dry ingredients.

Scoop into little balls and pat down to flatten them a little.

The recipe called for a 15 minute bake time, but after time was up, the cookies were still doughy.  I put them back in for 10 more minutes and the results were fractionally better.  It was at this point that I decided to eat one and it was also the point where I realized these cookies were gonna suck.  Even after returning them to the oven for another 10 minutest to bake, I knew all was lost.  The baking completely killed any Sazerac flavoring.  The end result was a sugar cookie with no character at all.  I didn't gift these like I had hoped and after eating a few over the course of a couple of days, I just couldn't finish them so I tossed them out.  I wouldn't bother making these cookies again.  Sazerac cookies, my ass!  They were barely decent as far as sugar cookies go; no way I'd recommend making these.  #Fail
