Bourbon & The Path To Sweet Victory

When sweet victory is close for well deserved teams, it seems appropriate that a special dessert should be served at SEC Championship Game gatherings to commemorate the occasion. Bourbon Brookies not only merges a football fanatic favorite, the beloved classic chocolate chip cookies but layers that over a rich bourbon infused brownie for the win. Score big when your tailgating social is stacked with a lovely morsel everyone is sure to love.

makes 16 bars

Run The Option

Semi-sweet chocolate morsels can be substituted for bittersweet morsels in the cookie dough, if desired.

1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp bourbon
1 1/3 cups ap flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup bittersweet chocolate morsels, chopped
Bourbon Brownie Batter

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line the bottom & sides of a 8-inch baking pan with foil, allowing 2-inches to extend over the sides. Lightly grease the foil & set aside. Cream the butter & the brown sugar in an electric stand mixer on Medium speed until light & airy, about 5 minutes. Add the egg & the bourbon, blending just until the yolk disappears. Whisk together the flour, the baking soda & the salt. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Low speed just until combined. Stir in the chopped chocolate morsels. Prepare the Bourbon Brownie Batter & pour into the prepared pan. Spoon the cookie dough on top of the brownie batter. 

Bake 40 to 43 minutes or until set. Expect a few moist crumbs when tested with a wooden pick. The outer edges will be more set & the center a tad more fudgy. Cool completely. Lift the brownies from the pan using the foil as handles. Cut into bars.

No. 1

The Cookie Dough

A stand mixer is the perfect choice for mixing this cookie dough. You will think there is too much cookie dough to cover the top of the brownie batter but it all fits perfectly & bakes beautifully for a tall bar once cut. Pinch pieces of dough & generously cover the surface. 

No. 2

The Brownie Batter

Cocoa powder eliminates the need to chop & melt chocolate. Melt the butter in the microwave using a glass bowl. It can cool down a bit while preparing the cookie dough.

I used a rubber spatula to blend all of the ingredients together. The batter will appear to be a touch skimpy looking in the baking pan. Proceed as directed. Everything bakes well.

No. 3

The Substitution

You can omit the bourbon for a more family-friendly version. Substitute 1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract in the cookie dough. Replace the bourbon with either coffee or water in the brownie batter.

No. 4

The Slicing

So much depends upon how pretty a bar cookie looks. Neat & tidy cuts can be yours. Use a a sharp chef’s knife & cut straight down the center of the brookies then cut each half in half. You will have four pieces. Simply quarter them. The most important thing to do is to wipe the knife clean in between the cuts. Run it under hot water & dry thoroughly between each cut.
