Whiskey & Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend over at Ritzy Mom blog made a version of these so I decided to make my own. Thanks for the inspiration!


240g flour
220g  rye flour
260g butter, room temperature
250g brown sugar
150g sugar
1 ½ teaspoon coarse salt
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
1 tablespoon whiskey
200g chopped bittersweet chocolate
125g chopped walnuts
flaked salt for sprinkling


Add rye flour to a pan and toast it slightly.  Make sure you move it around as it will burn quickly.  Put into a bowl and add the rest of the dry ingredients.

In stand mixer, cream butter and sugars until well combined.  Add eggs one at a time and then vanilla and whiskey.

Add the flour until just combined.  Fold in the chopped chocolate chunks and nuts by hand. Refrigerate overnight or for a few hours.

When ready to bake preheat oven to 350 F. Line cookie sheets with silpat or parchment.

Using a small ice cream scoop place the cookies about two inches apart on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with a bit of flaked salt.  Cook for about 15-18 minutes.
