 Desserts are not normally something that people think of when they think about cooking with liquor, but these cookies are so good. Cake mix cookies are incredible all on their own, but when you top them with this bourbon glaze, these cookies are something spectacular.

Ingredients

  • Vanilla cake mix- Using a cake mix gives these cookies a great taste and texture.
  • Eggs – Whisks the eggs before adding to the cake mix.
  • Unsalted butter- Always use unsalted butter to control the salt in the recipe.
  • Sugar- Cookies need sugar.
  • Jim Beam Kentucky bourbon- This gives the flavor to the glaze.

Are These Safe for Kids to Eat?

Whenever I make food, whether it is dinner or dessert, that has alcohol, I am asked if it is safe for kids. This is a personal issue. For some recipes, they say that the alcohol cooks out. In other recipes, the amount of alcohol per serving is minuscule. Whether you feel safe letting children have these cookies is a question that only you can answer. There is 3 tablespoons of alcohol used in the glaze, which is much less that a shot and it is spread out over all of the cookies.

What Flavor Cake Mix Should I Use for Bourbon Butter Cookies?

I use vanilla when I am making these cookies. You can use a yellow mix or any other flavor cake you like. I prefer the vanilla flavor.
