- 12 ounces of an imperial stout or porter beer
- 3/4 cup butter (cut into cubes)
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup bread flour (this will make them chewy)
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2/3 cup pretzels twists (break into small pieces)
- ¼ cup honey roasted peanuts
- In a pot, over medium-high heat, add the beer and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 1 tbs. About 8 to 10 minutes.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter and both types of sugar, beat until well creamed. Add the egg and the yolk, beat until well combined. Add leftover beer, and vanilla extract and beat until well combined, scraping the bottom to make sure all the ingredients are well combined.
- In a separate bowl, add both types of flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Add dry ingredients to the stand mixer and mix on medium-low speed until just barely combined, don’t over mix. Add the chocolate chips, pretzel pieces, and peanuts, and stir until incorporated.
- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, scoop golfball sized scoops of dough, roll them into round balls and place on the baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 4 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Bake for 18-22 minutes or until light golden brown, don’t over bake. (If you don’t chill the dough, or if you make smaller sized cookies, the cooking time will be much shorter. Start to keep an eye on your cookies after about 12 minutes.)

While you can’t taste the beer in this recipe it is responsible for keeping the dough light and fluffy. Thank goodness for unsung heroes!

We loved Unibroue’s way of celebrating the first day of Summer…with Éphémère Blueberry popsicles. We’re feeling cooled off already.

The traditional pairing is cookies and milk nothing calls for milk more than a decadent, moist brownie. We think you’ll agree. Perhaps go wild and pair with a Milk Stout! Best of both worlds!
