Chocolate. Coffee. Whiskey.

Remember seeing photos of the cookies I make with chocolate, coffee, and whiskey (among other things) in the ingredients? I love making those cookies at the holidays and sending a dozen each to various family members and some friends. I love photographing them also, because they look so scrumptious and photograph so beautifully. Sometimes I make a second round of them at Valentine’s Day, adding a drop or two of red food coloring to make the icing pink and again, send them out a dozen apiece to family who I sorely miss.
What makes me sad, however, is that I had to promise my friend not to share the recipe. I can use the recipe, which I acquired while filling in for her baking talent in fund raising event for our church. She entrusted me with the “secret” recipe, and I had to promise not to pass it around because she likes to keep it reserved for fund raising efforts.
Before my son came back to the farm for the holidays, I was searching for some things online and I came across a cake recipe that also featured chocolate, coffee, and whiskey and thought it would be awesome to give that a try while my son was out. I tweaked the recipe a bit to suit my particular tastes and baking preferences, and … oh, my goodness!
