What’s better than brownies and a splash of whiskey glazed on top? Brownie cookies with a brown sugar cinnamon whiskey glaze, that’s what! This recipe for perfectly fudgy, crinkle-topped, rich chocolate brownie cookies is the best of both worlds.
What’s better to celebrate the holiday season than with a ton of chocolate and whiskey?! I’ll tell you what is… putting it all together in cookie form. BROWNIE COOKIES. That classic brownie crinkled top, chewy chocolatey center, and for this one, because you know I love it, a brown sugar cinnamon whiskey glaze (and a splash or three in the cookies for good measure) using none other than my favorite Jackson Morgan Southern Cream blend.
Brownies are one of those bites that come in cravings. Y’all know the ones. Sitting on the couch after dinner and would give anything for something sweet. Brownies always hit the spot. With how fast these cookies are to whip up, and the whiskey cream glazed on top, you might as well just call these cookies a chocolate baked nightcap.
Jackson Morgan is a local Tennessee family spirit brand that I’ve enjoyed for years. It’s my go-to for a coffee with a kick, swaps perfectly for milk in any baked recipe (check out all of the ones I’ve made below), and is great on the rocks. I love supporting great brands run by great people in my neighborhood.
Luckily for you all, it is available all across the states and online.
Honestly, I think I would take these brownie cookies over a pan of old school brownies. You get more of that paper-thin crinkled top that somehow magically appears, and all of the just barely crisp edges. No fighting over the corners or centers or the pan because every single cookie will be perfect.
The little bit of brown sugar whiskey cream in the cookies adds the perfect sweetness to balance the rich dark chocolates (yes… plural — two types of chocolate!). The glaze is as easy to make as you could want. It’s whiskey cream and powdered sugar. That’s it. Since it is the holiday season, I went ahead and puffed a bit of golden edible glitter on top for a bit of a Midas touch. Cheers, y’all!
Sip and be social!
