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!
