Chewy Spiced Rum Chocolate Chip Cookies

Baking with booze is one of my favorite pastimes. I love adding a touch of liquor to recipes for the added flavor. Cookies are no exception and these Spiced Rum Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect example. They’re soft and chewy with a big amount of flavor to set them apart from your “average” chocolate chip cookie. They’ve got a hint of ginger, nutmeg and browned butter to accompany the dark rum and the chocolate adds the touch of sweetness to compliment the spice.

I adore regular chocolate chip cookies, but every now-and-then I need to kick them up a notch. Spiced Rum is such a great option because it’s got a deep caramel type flavor. Just a little bit goes a long way too. The rum, along with the dry mix spices, gives these cookies a great depth of flavor.

I make these Spiced Rum Chocolate Chip Cookies every holiday season, but they’ll randomly because another appearance because my Husband can’t wait a full year without them. Adults appreciate the spice palette more than kids – I’ll admit that – but that doesn’t stop me from including them in my Christmas cookie tray.

So grab your baking trays and get a bag of chocolate chips – because you’re going to take your homemade cookies lineup to the next level! These Spiced Rum Chocolate Chip Cookies will become a favorite go-to recipe.

How To Make Spiced Rum Chocolate Chip Cookies

Did you know that you can make a cookie recipe and it can come out differently based upon your technique? Everything matters when you bake, to make uniform cookies. I really trust my cookie trays and silicone baking mats so that they cookies don’t stick. Don’t skip the refrigeration step either – it’s so important for the perfect cookie!

What To Serve With Spiced Rum Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are delicious as part of a dessert charcuterie board, paired with cookies that are entirely different. I’ve crumbled them on top of vanilla bean ice cream and I’ve also given the cookies out during the holiday season as a gift.

If you’re looking for a truly decadent way to enjoy your spiced rum chocolate chip cookies, you can pair it with an after-dinner cocktail. A homemade hot buttered rum cocktail would pair so well with the cookie flavors!

How To Keep Your Cookies Fresh

Once your cookies have cooled, you want to store them in an air-tight food storage container. They don’t need to be refrigerated and that won’t help them last longer. Keep them out on the countertop and they’ll stay fresh for 3-4 days. If you feel like they’re not as soft, add a slice of bread to the food container and it’ll bring back some of the moisture.

Yes! If you want to freeze the cookie dough, you can do so for up to three months. I always cover it in plastic wrap and aluminum foil to avoid freezer burn. Label the date on your cookie dough too. You can freeze the dough as a big ball or freeze it already portioned into drops. Let it thaw in the refrigerator for 24 hours before baking. It’s always a treat to have cookies ready in minutes!

Tips For Making Drop Cookies

  • Let your butter soften to room temperature without using a microwave
  • Use a stand-mixer and scrape the sides after each ingredient addition
  • Don’t skip the refrigeration step
  • Use a small ice cream scoop or roll the drops into a ball using your hands
  • Use silicone baking mats or parchment paper to avoid sticking
  • Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool

Does It Matter What Type Of Spiced Rum You Use?

Not exactly. You want to be sure to use a dark spiced rum. I used Appleton Estate Rum from Jamaica – the 12-year-old rare cask. It’s a great spiced rum, but it is considered top shelf. It’s just what we have on hand for cocktails. However, you’re burning off the alcohol. So you can use a cheaper dark rum, like Captain Morgan, and it’ll still be delicious.
