Cookie #37 - Kentucky Mint Julep with Maker's Mark Fudge Topping
At the Maker's Mark Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky, the Toll Gate Cafe has these most wonderful cookies. The cookie portion itself is absolutely one of the best cookies I've ever had. It's a sweet cookie full of minty chocolate pieces. I loved the cookie by itself, but the bourbon fudge topping took it to a whole new level. I made my whiskey-loving man very happy with these cookies.
My only warning: since you don't actually cook the fudge topping, I'm not sure the warmth of the melted chocolate is enough to actually cook the alcohol out.
