Does A Booty Good Cookies

 Booty cookie 2

At Christmas my sister, Laurie, gifted me with some gourmet cupcakes but what I loved the most about them was the box. I have it sitting on my scale and knew I needed to create some "Does A Booty Good" cookies. Then I remember these grand marnier cream cheese chocolate chip cookies. These are the first recipe I ever had published (in a small church cookbook), I was 19 I think. Gosh, grand marnier,19 and a church cookbook, well, I will not comment  ;-)

Boy, nothing does your booty better than cream cheese, chocolate and grand marnier!!!!  Now being a spoiled brat that I was at 19 (I did not have to pay for that grand marnier, thank you daddy for letting me use yours for the cookies!!) I thought nothing of using a 1/4 cup. But I am a big girl now (and have to buy my own) and wow, the stuff is expensive. I am posting the recipe the original way I wrote it but between me and you, now, I would NEVER waste good, incredibly expensive grand marnier on cookies. Instead I would use an inexpensive orange liqueur and save the grand marnier to have with the cookie!!. Enjoy xoxo

Yum, they sound so good. I never thought of cup cakes as a gift but I know I would love that too. We have a place in town that also uses pink boxes, they are just too cute! Blessings to you sister!! Dianntha

The box is hilarious! and the cookies look like they will be delicious.

I can't believe that a church let a 19 year old publish a recipe with Grand Marnier, but then what were you doing with GM in the first place.

Love checking in on you dear Clarice.

the box is adorable! Thats the nice thing about cute packages, once you lick your fingers of the last yummy drop, you still have a sweet treat for the eyes.


that is too cute and they look so yummy! who doesnt love cupcakes?! they do everything good!~ :)


Clarice ~ These sound absolutely divine! Now why did you go and do that!?! Grand Marnier ~ my one weekness!


I use brandy and Grand Marnier to soak my fruitcakes with at Christmas. Just this yr tho I found a brandy with orange liqueur in it that is much cheaper than Grand Marnier. And by talking to the shop owner I found out its made with Cognac which is just aged brandy. So I could use the cheaper one and it wouldnt matter. You might want to do that or mix the orange liqueur with a bit of brandy.
