How can you go wrong with a name like that! When the weather starts turning cooler, or just plain cold, I start thinking about baking.
The chilling time for these cookies is very important!
Southern Comfort Cookies
about 3 dozen
1 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup Southern Comfort whiskey
confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nuts, and raisins. In a separate bowl cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. To the egg mixture, alternately add whiskey and the flour mixture. Chill the batter at least 1 hour, longer is better, then roll it into 1 1/4-inch-diameter logs. Wrap in wax paper and chill 4 hours, overnight is better. Slice 1/2-inch thick and place 1-inch apart on a baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F oven. Cool and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
