Servings 16 cookies


  • ½ cups (125 g) butter softened at room temperature
  • ½ cups (100 g) light brown soft sugar
  • cups (125 g) caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups (235 g) plain flour or self-raising flour and exclude the baking powder
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt plus extra for topping
  • 2 tablespoon of your favourite bourbon / whiskey / scotch
  • ½ cups (120 g) milk chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1 cups (100 g) pecans roughly chopped


  • Pre-heat oven: 195°C / 175°C (fan) / Gas Mark 5½ / 390°F
  • Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.
  • Beat in the egg, vanilla and bourbon until fully combined.
  • Sieve in the flour and baking powder, then add the salt and stir until just combined.
  • Add in the chocolate chunks and pecans, stirring through until spread throughout.
  • Roll the dough into balls slightly larger than a golf ball, and space evenly across baking trays lined with greaseproof paper. Put these into the freezer for 15mins or the fridge for 30mins.
  • Bake the cookie dough balls in the oven for 8-10mins until lightly golden. Sprinkle with sea salt as soon as they’re done and allow them to cool on a wire rack or eat them warm and gooey.


  • Not wanting to eat all 12 at once? Freeze the cookie dough as cookie-ready balls and keep up to 3 months in the freezer. No need to defrost before cooking, unless you want slightly thinner cookies, then defrost for a few hours before baking.
