I love whiskey and I love cookies, so when I heard about these Crown Royal Whiskey Cookies, I just had to try it.
It didn't take too long for these cookies to become one of the most popular cookie recipes on this site. I'm really not that surprised though because these whiskey cookies are absolutely fabulous!
Crown Royal was gracious enough to post their recipe on their website which is what I used as a starting point to make the whiskey cookies pictured here.
To be perfectly honest, this is one of the few recipes that I didn't have to tweak to my liking. Pretty much perfection as is thanks to the Canadian Whiskey!
This cookie recipe reminds me of my absolute favorite cookie, my Soft Molasses Cookies. If you are looking for another great cookie recipe, you should give my Spicy Caramel Cookie recipe a try. Yummy! And for another whiskey-flavored dessert, give my Cinnamon Whiskey Cupcakes a shot. You won't regret it!
These Crown Royal Whiskey cookies are soft and moist with a terrific flavor. As I said above, this cookie recipe has quickly become one of the most popular recipes on this blog! Make sure you check my notes below about baking with alcohol.

Made this last year everyone loved it make it again this year
Made these cookies for a family gathering. They were a big hit. Everyone loved them. Will make them again.
I made the several years ago and had left out the coco powder a few times. I just made them again and I used the Salted caramel Crown Royal and topped the warm cookies with powdered sugar. Still amazing.
Now that sounds delicious! I have to try salted caramel next time I make these cookies. Thanks for letting me know!
I just tried the crown royal salted Carmel it’s so good!! I made kahlua chocolate chip cookies also. Gives off delicious flavors.
I have made these twice. I won the bake off at work with this recipe. I keep getting request to make more.
Changed it up just slightly so didn't use cocoa powder, used crown royal salted Carmel, and added white chocolate chips. Got so many great reviews from friends. Making more to give to friends for Christmas
Thanks for the feedback!
I didn’t try this recipe but I will next time! I just made kahlua chocolate chip cookies and decided to substitute the kahlua on the second batch with crown royal salted Carmel. Never put alcohol in cookies before but they turned out amazing.!
Has anyone tried adding chocolate chips to this recipe? Results?
These are the best homemade recipes and I really love the Peach Crown
