Derby Cookies

As a child, I loved horses. Even took riding lessons and collected horse figurines. I wasn't a particular fan of horse races, but just to see the beautiful horses run the Kentucky Derby was a treat.

These are easy cookies to make. I was expecting them to come out more like actual balls, but they sort of flattened out on the bottom, while retaining the rounded top. No matter- delicious in any shape. 

The addition of bourbon to the demarra sugar for rolling, really kicks these cookies up a notch. That, with the 2 tablespoons of bourbon in the recipe- well, we're set for the day!

You can find the recipe here, at Baked Sunday Mornings. Enjoy!
