Back at Christmas, I was in a flurry of baking cookies when someone posted on Facebook they were making the hop, skip and go naked cookies. When another person commented they loved the cocktails, I was intrigued. Cookies inspired by a cocktail. This is my kind of cookie!
Now, I discovered the drink is simply beer, frozen lemonade, and vodka. For real, Farmwife Drinks has the recipe for this Hop, Skip and Go Naked Punch or what some call beer punch. I made two batches of the drink last time we got together with the other farm wives. It is addicting! These and my oreo truffles are always a go-to cookie for me to make

Now back to the cookies. Start by creaming brown sugar and white sugar with shortening and butter.
Now it is time to add the good stuff. Start with toffee pieces.
- 1 c. shortening
- ½ c. softened butter
- 1 c. light brown sugar
- ¾ c. sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tbsp. milk or cream
- 2 Tbsp. rum or brandy
- 1 ¾ c. all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- 2 ½ c. quick-cooking oats
- 1 ½ c. chocolate chips
- 1 ½ c. toffee pieces
- Cream together shortening and butter in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
- Add eggs, rum, and milk. Combine thoroughly.
- In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, combining until the consistency is smooth.
- Gradually mix in oats until evenly distributed.
- Add chocolate chips and toffee pieces and mix.
- Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
- Bake for 8-9 minutes at 375 degrees, turning cookie sheets around halfway through.
