Making cookies that calls for 1/3 cup brandy but I am worried some people won't want that. Ideas?
Fruit syrup (diluted if it's too thick).
Good quality grape or other fruit juice.
Adding a different flavor would depend on the type of cookie.
What is the main flavor of the cookie?
Usually !/3 cup fluid in cookies means that it is integral to the recipe (unlike 1/3 cup fluid in soup). Changing brandy with non-alcoholic sub could be tricky because it could effect the texture (due to alcohol) a lot. Also a lot of alcohol content are baked off during baking so that might not even be an issue. What is the recipe?
