Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
step 2
First, make the Bourbon Marmalade. In a saucepan, add Fruit Marmalade (1/3 cup), 1 1/2 Tbsp of juice from Lemon (1), and Bourbon (2 Tbsp) and cook over medium heat until the mixture is well combined.
step 3
Remove from heat, add 2 dashes of Orange Bitters (2 dashes), and stir until fully combined. Transfer to a clean bowl and let it cool completely.
step 4
Next, make the cookie dough. In a mixing bowl, using a hand mixer cream together the Butter (3/4 cup) and Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup). Whisk over medium speed until well combined.
step 5
Add Farmhouse Eggs® Large Brown Egg (1), Orange (1), Vanilla Extract (as needed), and Salt (as needed). Mix until fully combined.
step 6
Add in All-Purpose Flour (2 cups) and Corn Starch (2 tsp), and mix until completely combined. Using a one-tablespoon cookie scoop or measuring tablespoon, scoop the cookie dough into 1 Tbsp size dough and roll it into balls.
step 7
Place the cookie dough on the lined baking sheet, leaving enough space between each ball. Use your thumb or the rounded back of a teaspoon to gently press an indentation into the cookie dough. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
step 8
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Then fill the cookie indentation with the bourbon marmalade (about ½ tsp each).
