These were good, sort of like my tipsy cakes minus the coffee. I am sure that I'll be baking these again, but trying rum and maybe a different whiskey. Kudos, darlin...these were great!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (18 ounce) box devil's food cake mix
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 tablespoons jack daniel whiskey or 5 tablespoons other sweet whiskey
  • 12 cup powdered sugar, for rolling

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine eggs, cake mix, oil, nuts (if using) and whiskey in batter bowl and mix well.
  3. Chill dough overnight, or at least 3 hours.
  4. Form into small balls (about 1-2 tablespoons each) and roll in powdered sugar.
  5. Place cookies on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, until almost no indentation remains when touched.
  6. They will be soft when taken from the oven, but will crispen when cooled.
  7. Bake for closer to 10 minutes if you like a softer cookie, closer to 15 for crispy ones!
