Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

These are a bake shop quality cookie--- I have never tried it, but I think you could replace the Kahlua for a tablespoon of pure vanilla extract and vanilla chips for chocolate:)

Thiis is an exceptionally good tasting cookie. I used 1 Tbs. pure vanilla in place of the Kahlua since I wanted a cookie and not candy I used 2/3 cup choc chips and 1/3 cup white choc chips.
