It’s that time of year again, when ladies break out the ridiculous head gear, bars serve mint juleps in frosted pewter mugs, and Baked Sunday Mornings tries out Derby Cookies. They are walnut butter cookies, rolled in sugar, and flavored with whiskey and vanilla. I honestly don’t think that combination could turn out poorly.
This is the second time I’ve made them and I loved them both times. The exterior is delightfully crunchy after being rolled in demerara sugar, while the inside remained soft and buttery. I also like that it makes a lot of cookies so it’s great if you’re taking it to a party or to share with coworkers.
On a side note, I accidently watched the Kentucky Derby yesterday. We went out to watch the Capitals/Penguins game, and the Derby was dominating NBC coverage before the game. The bar was disappointingly light on derby hats, though I can understand why people would find it clashing with their hockey jerseys.
