  3. Then, add in the egg and vanilla extract and beat in.

  5. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Slowly pour the dry ingredient mixture into the wet mixture until combined.
  7. Fold in the dark chocolate chips with a spatula.
  8. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to portion out the dough on the prepared baking sheets.
  9. Bake for 12 minutes in center of oven or until crispy around the edges and maintain softness in the center.
  10. Remove from oven when done and let cool for a few minutes before moving them over to a wire rack.

Tips for Perfect Results

  • When measuring flour, be careful not to pack it down as it can make cookies dense.
  • Don’t overmix the dough as it can cause cookies to turn out tough.
  • Use good quality Cabernet Sauvignon like Sutter Home or any other dry red wine you prefer, just keep in mind that sweetness will affect the flavor.
  • For a boozy aroma, try adding a pinch more Cabernet Sauvignon before mixing.
  • Letting the dough chill before baking can result in a thicker cookie with a slightly firmer bite.

Pro Tip: For an extra chocolatey treat feel free to switch up the dark chocolate chips with double chocolate chips or even chop up some Sutter Home Dark Chocolate Merlot squares to mix in!

Now that your cookies are baked to perfection, it’s time for the best part – enjoying them!

Substitutions and Variations

Don’t have cabernet sauvignon on hand? No worries, you can still make a delicious batch of chocolate chip cookies. Here are some substitutions and variations to try:

– For the red wine: Swap out the cabernet sauvignon for merlot, pinot noir or any other dry red wine that you enjoy.

– For the chocolate chips: Instead of using regular chocolate chips, try mixing in white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips for a unique twist.

– Gluten-free option: Use gluten-free flour instead of all-purpose flour to make these cookies gluten-free.

– Vegan option: Replace the butter with vegan butter and use a flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water) in place of the egg to make these cookies vegan-friendly.

– Dark chocolate lovers: Swap the semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips for double dark chocolate chips or add in some cocoa powder (1/3 cup) for even more rich, chocolaty goodness.

– Wine pairings: If you’re looking for a wine pairing that’s outside of the box, try pairing these cookies with a glass of olive oil or apple cider.

No matter which variation you choose, you’ll be enjoying a delicious treat that’s perfect for any occasion.

Once you’ve made these rich and delectable Cabernet Sauvignon chocolate chip cookies, it’s time to explore their perfect pairing. These wine-infused treats are best served with a glass of the same Cabernet Sauvignon that was used in the recipe. Sutter Home’s Cabernet Sauvignon is an exceptional choice for this purpose, providing a rich flavor profile that elevates the cookies to new heights.

The chocolate and wine flavors in these cookies make them a versatile dessert that pairs well with many meals. They make for a unique and indulgent dessert when paired with roasted meats like lamb or even chicken. The bold flavors of the wine pair nicely with savory flavors like rosemary-infused dishes or sharp cheeses, balancing out the sweetness of the cookies.

For a less formal pairing, these cookies go exceptionally well with pretzels, apple cider, or even peanut butter for some added creaminess. If you are feeling adventurous and looking for an exceptional taste experience, try dipping your Cabernet Sauvignon chocolate chip cookie into a glass of olive oil before taking a bite. The flavor contrast will excite your palate!

In terms of serving, these cookies work extremely well when served warm with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. The coldness of the ice cream balances out the warmth of the cookies while complementing the flavors.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Now that you’ve whipped up a batch of these delicious Cabernet Sauvignon Chocolate Chip Cookies, you might be wondering how to store and reheat them for the best possible results. Luckily, these cookies are quite versatile and can easily be made ahead of time and served at any convenient time.

To make these cookies ahead of time, store the dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. Before baking, remove from the fridge and let it come to room temperature for about 20 minutes. Once the dough has returned to room temperature, follow the recipe instructions as usual.

If you happen to have some leftover cookies, storage is key for maintaining their delicious textures and flavors. Store any leftover cookies at room temperature in an airtight container or sealable plastic bag for up to five days. For longer-term storage, you can freeze them in an airtight container or sealable plastic bag for up to one month.

To reheat frozen cookies, simply take them out of the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature or in the refrigerator overnight. Once they’re soft and pliable again, they’re ready to eat! You can also warm them up in a preheated oven at 350Β°F for approximately five minutes or until they’re crispy on the outside but still soft on the inside.

Whether you decide to make these Cabernet Sauvignon Chocolate Chip Cookies ahead of time or store leftovers for later enjoyment, preparing and reheating these delicious cookies has never been easier!

Tips for Perfect Results

To ensure that your Cabernet Sauvignon chocolate chip cookies come out perfect, there are a few tips you should know. First, it’s important to not overmix the dough once the flour has been added. Overmixing can result in tough cookies.

Second, when measuring the flour, make sure to spoon it into your measuring cup and level it off with a knife. This will help prevent using too much flour which can make the cookies dry and crumbly.

Third, don’t forget to chill the dough before baking. Chilling helps the cookies retain their shape and prevents them from spreading too much while baking.

Fourth, be careful not to overbake the cookies. Cookies continue to cook as they cool on the baking sheet, so it’s best to take them out of the oven once they start to look set but still slightly undercooked.

Lastly, experiment with different types of wine chocolates and pairings. You might find that a dark chocolate merlot makes for an even richer flavor than Cabernet Sauvignon or that pairing your cookies with a glass of apple cider adds an unexpected twist.

Follow these tips and you’ll be sure to impress your friends and family with perfectly delicious Cabernet Sauvignon chocolate chip cookies every time you bake them!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, these Cabernet Sauvignon Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect recipe for anyone looking to combine two of life’s greatest pleasures: wine and dessert. With rich, dark chocolate chips infused with a dry red wine, this recipe is sure to impress your friends, family or guests.

Cabernet Sauvignon Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I'm still on my grape seed flour kick and made these yummy Cabernet Cookies the other day which were "all gone" quite quickly. If you like the combination of red wine and chocolate, be sure to give these treats a try. Grape seed flour is full of antioxidants, fiber and protein and adds a nice flavor and texture to baked goods. I'm loving experimenting with it these days. One more super food to add to the repertoire.
