Why not turn it into a cookie?  I mean, how can you not?

It really wasn’t hard to make a soft and moist cookie filled with chocolate chunks and great coffee flavor.

And you don’t even have to keep these away from the kids. In fact, my grandson loves these. lol

You can use any coffee liquor. We just picked Kahlua due to the mudslides.

And feel free to use either coffee powder or espresso powder. It’s all up to you.

You don’t have to use sprinkles, BUT… they make them SO festive and Sweets & Treats has so many great ones to choose from!

  1. Very tasty cookie! I have one issue though. My dough was very sticky. Rolling them into balls was quite messy! I refrigerated the dough for several hours. Not sure why this happened. I did try dusting my hands with confectioners sugar. That didn’t help much, but the cookies tasted fine. Any idea why the dough was like this? I want to make these again, but only if this dough is not so messy to roll into balls.

    1. Because anything having to do with baking is like a fine science project, any number of things could have happened to make your dough seem so sticky including the amount of humidity in the air, to the warmness of the dough (which I read you tried to fix) to even elevation issues or a different measurement of ingredients. Even the age of the ingredients can play a part, even when they were just purchased.

      There is a way to fix this though. First we wouldn’t recommend using any form of sugar to roll the dough, as that’s just going to create more of a sticky mess since it’s adding more sticky sugar. Next time try adding flour to your surface and your hands. But also, sometimes adding cornstarch or adding a bit more flour to the recipe, a tablespoon at a time, either stirring it into the dough with a spatula or using an electric mixer, will fix the situation right up.

      We have had issues using extra sugary coffee liqueur (this isn’t always controllable) with it getting a bit too sticky. We’ve tried both the flour and the cornstarch method and as long as you’re not dumping huge quantities of either in, you should end up with a delicious roll-able dough.
