When i saw this link in a blog I follow I knew i had to give it a try. I mean it advertises kahlua and baileys. I check the liquor “cabinet” and i had kahlua and rumchata… same thing, right? Let’s give it a try.
1 cookies (if you can)
1 hour, 30 minutes
1 hour, 50 minutes
I used a small scoop originally. I think the larger scoop would be more fun.
- 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted & cooled
- 1 large egg
- 3 Tablespoons Kahlúa (coffee liqueur)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 Tablespoons Rum Chata
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line baking sheet(s) with silpat
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder until well combined.
- In kitchenaid bowl, beat together granulated sugar and melted butter on medium speed until light and fluffy.
- Beat in egg, followed by Kahlúa and vanilla until well combined.
- Beat in dry ingredients to wet ingredients until just combined.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Using a medium scoop (about 1 1/2 Tablespoons), scoop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets leaving about 2 inches between cookies to allow for spreading.
- Bake cookies at 350 degrees F for about 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Cool slightly on pan, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.
- When cookies are completely cooled, make the glaze. Place powdered sugar in a small bowl. Stir in 1 Tablespoon of Rumchata, add more as needed while stirring to create a thin glaze.
- Spoon glaze into a small resealable bag, seal bag, then clip one corner with scissors and drizzle over cookies. Or use a squeeze bottle to drizzle over cookies. Let cookies sit a few minutes for glaze to set.
If you have read any of my other posts. I’m not a fan of my own cookies, i get joy out of making them and sharing with others! This recipe… I ate most every cookie in 2 days… I did walk to the cookie jar for every one, so i burned some calories, right?
Hubby decided he’s not a fan of the glazed but loved the ones without glaze very much! So to keep my waistline in check, if I make them, i will glaze if they will immediately leave, and unglazed if they will be staying!
So – final verdict – MAKE THESE! Seriously! If you do, let me know what you think!
