We love cookies!  We love chocolate chip cookies!  I don't even know how many different cookie recipes we have, and we use them all.  This is a new one for us.  Chocolate chip cookies with bourbon (and taragon) in them.  Tried it out for th efirst time and surprise, surprise... we love them.  The sea salt is optioal, but we have found with many of our cookie recipes that a little sprinkle of salt on top really brings out the flavors and makes a great cookie.
