Soft and Chewy Mojito Cookies

Soft and Chewy Mojito Cookies - Super SOFT and chewy cookies that taste like you're drinking a mojito!! Who can say no to rum, mint, lime, and sugar?

In a word, they taste like you’re drinking a mojito! There’s fresh mint, fresh lime zest, rum extract, and sugar – similar to what you’d find in a mojito!

They’re super, super soft with just the right amount of chewiness. They’re exceedingly moist and pliable. If you love really soft cookies, you’re going to love these.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce rye whiskey
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons rum extract (imitation is fine), or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon spearmint extract, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • lime zest, as desired for garnishing
  • fresh mint leaves, as desired for garnishing

Preparation

  1. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or large mixing bowl and electric mixer), add the butter, sugars, and beat on medium-high speed until creamed and well combined, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the egg, milk, rum extract, spearmint extract, and beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 minutes.
  3. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the flour, baking soda, salt, and mix until just combined, about 1 minute or less.
  4. Using a 2-ounce cookie scoop, form approximately 16 uniformly-sized cookie dough balls, place on a large plate or platter, cover with plasticwrap, and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or up to 4 days before baking.
  5. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat or spray with cooking spray. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet, spaced evenly apart. I recommend baking 8 cookies per sheet.
  6. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing. While cooling, garnish with lime zest and mint to taste. Garnished cookies should be eaten within a few hours because the lime zest and mint will start to discolor within a few hours. Store ungarnished cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Alternatively, unbaked cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, so consider baking only as many cookies as desired and save the remaining dough to be baked in the future when desired.

My husband loved these cookies,Thank you!
