Mini muffin tin
for the recipe I use, but store bought would also be fine
Preheat oven to 350°. Line mini muffin tins with liners, or grease each compartment with butter or cooking spray.
Cream butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl, using a hand or stand mixer. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add vanilla and bourbon and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture ¼ cup at a time.
Stir in chocolate chips. Set cookie mixture aside.
Roll out each pie crust on a floured surface. Use a round 2½ inch (diameter)
cookie or biscuit cutter
to cut out the dough circles. Press each circle into the muffin tin compartments.
Press each dough circle into the muffin tin compartments.
Scoop dough into each pie shell and press down. You want enough in each pie shell so it fills the shell completely once pressed down.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cookies are on the darker side of golden brown.
