Whiskey Bacon Chocolate Cookies

There’s a local distillery in Edmonton called Hansen Distillery that makes a super tasty brew called Northern Eyes Whisky. We’re loving the savoury, spicy flavour with notes of dark caramel, mild vanilla, black pepper, and caramelized banana. And, it happens to go perfectly with the smoky salty flavor of bacon! Put them together and this power combination takes your everyday chocolate chunk cookies from ordinary to extraordinary. Let us introduce you to Whiskey Bacon Chocolate Cookies…
