Adding Alcohol in Cookies
December 16, 2012 at 3:30 AM

Hello fellow bakers! I found an amazing sugar cookie recipe which is such a great base for making tons of different flavors. I was thinking about trying to add liquor to the recipe. Is there a rule of thumb to do this? Like, replacing vanilla extract with rum as oppose to rum extract. I hae tried to do some research and Im not really finding a whole lot. The recipe I have in mind is rootbeer schnapps sugar cookies. Your help is very appreciated:D

    I've only ever made cakes with alcohol.  If you try it let I want to know how it goes so we can try it.  We usually bring an alcohol filled cake to the fire hall christmas party and one year one of the guys fed it to his kids.  They were fine.

    When you bake with alcohol all the alcohol burns off since it burns at a much lower temperature and all you get left with is the taste. So, it is perfectly safe for kids to eat. Im going to be trying my recipe today so I will let you know how it turns out:D

    I have a biscotti recipie that uses 2T of orange liquor.  The alcohol burn off while baking and the cookie has a delicious citrucy flavor.  Good luck, and let us know how the cookies turn out.

    Hmm No idea how  much to use but i am presuming you just replace the vanilla with the liquor, perhaps less.

    So, I gave it a try and I added 3 tablespoons of liquor and it did nothing to the taste. Im thinking since the alcohol burns off the flavor lessons quite a bit. Im going to try again by using more and a different type. I will keep posting:D

    The alcohol doesn't burn off completely.
