Rum Spiked Chocolate Chip Cookies

According to my husband, chocolate chip cookies are perfect for any occasion. In fact, he nearly has withdrawals when I don’t make a weekly batch. My friend, Aly, came to the rescue with her twist on the classic. She made these Rum Spiked Chocolate Chip Cookies by adding both rum and vanilla to the mix gave a terrific enhancement to the dough, plus using only egg whites and less butter made these a guilt free treat (as long as you don’t eat the whole batch in one sitting!).

Aly writes the marvelous blog, Cooking in Stilettos, and we both have a penchant for beautiful shoes. She is a blogger friend as well as a real life friend and inspiration. She helps keep me on top of the latest blogger trends and happenings, so please pop on over to her blog to say hello. She’s my second assignment for December’s Blogger Clue.

Rum Spiked Chocolate Chip Cookies Crispy on the Outside, Chewy on the Inside

Being that I typically bake decadent, fat laden desserts, I was a bit apprehensive whether I’d like these or not. I should have known that Aly wouldn’t lead me astray. With my first bite through the crisp sugary exterior into the sweet soft center, I realized those worries were for naught. Aly’s recipe for these Rum Spiked Chocolate Chip Cookies called for spiced rum, which I didn’t have, so I used my bottle of Diplomatico rum. She also brushed the tops with rum and I skipped this step. I also used only one tablespoon of rum and my dough seemed a little dry…but they baked up perfectly. If you’d like more rum flavor, up the amount to two tablespoons. Thanks, Aly, for the terrific Rum Spiked Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe!

The Rest of the Blogger CLUE reveals:

This month we are sharing recipes you might find on your grandmother’s table. My paternal grandmother passed away when I was 6, but I do remember her with a purse full of candy when she came to visit. My maternal grandmother was more of a cookie baker, but they both appreciated a little something sweet. I have a feeling they’d both approve of these Rum Spiked Chocolate Chip Cookies.
