Step 1

Heat oven to 350 and line cookie sheets with parchment.

Step 2

In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and spices. In a separate bowl, beat butter, Bourbon Vanilla Sugar, and Pure Cane Sorghum for 2 minutes on medium. Add egg, Bourbon Vanilla Extract, bourbon, and oil. Do not over beat. In additions of three, combine the flour mixture to the butter mixture. The batter will be soft. With a spoon, dollop batter on the baking sheets lined with parchment. These cookies spread out a lot, so a little bit of batter goes a long way. Sprinkle the tops of each cookie with Bourbon Vanilla Sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes. These cookies are best when they are still warm!
