"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:)"
Serving Size: 1 (1151 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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."
"Very good, but strong kahlua taste. Will use less next time."
"These cookies are amazing, I've come back to these again and again with different variations, I have always just used Kahlua though, never vanilla....Tonight I used half walnuts, half white chocolate, and it's another winner! These are soft and divine! Thanks for another amazing dessert recipe Kittencal!"
"I guess these aren't for me. I liked the white chips in them, but they were really flat. Perhaps it was me. We didn't eat very many. Sorry, Kitten, but most of your recipes have been great for us!"
"These really taste like "bake shop" cookies! I suspect that the chilling time makes the difference. I made these a few years ago for my MIL since she couldn't have chocolate then; I made these again for Thanksgiving with some allergy-friendly substitutions. I replaced the 3/4 cup of melted butter with 2 Tbs canola oil in a 3/4 cup measure that I topped off with applesauce. I substituted 1/4 cup of banana purÃ©e for the egg. If I tried hard, I think I could taste the banana. Maybe. The dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free version I made this time tastes exactly as I remember the first batch, so these fancy-tasting cookies are more adaptable than I expected! Yum!"
"These were probably the best cookie I made for my cookie plates this year. I used regular chocolate chips instead of white chocolate and they turned out wonderfully well. I will be making these again for certain. *added December 2009: This is my third year doing these and this year I struck the perfect balance by using both white and milk chocolate chunks..yummy!. I ended up blogging about them on my weekendcarnivore.com food blog."
"I am not giving this recipe a star rating because I am sure that I did something wrong. I was really looking forward to nice, flat, gooey cookies but mine did not spread out like they are supposed to. I would usually blame the recipe but it doesn't seem like anyone else had this problem and I have made a lot of other recipes from Kittencal that have been perfect. That said, the taste of these cookies is fantastic and even though they are small on puffy, they are still really gooey and delicious. Hopefully, next time mine will look like the pictures. Addition: I made these cookies again with the same problem. I tried not chilling them in hopes that this would make them flatten out, but it didn't work and I chilled the rest of the dough overnight. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?"
"These were great. I let them sit in the fridge for about 24 hours and I ended up making these about 1/2 a teaspoon full and baked them each for 10 mins. I used peanut butter chips instead and added in some chopped walnuts. I also only added 1/2 cup of butter and added 1 tbsp of water to help cut down on the fat and to make sure there was enough liquid to the cookie dough batter. I used the 1/4 cup of Kahlua (becaues I just love Kahlua!) and thought that these cookies were just splendid!"
"The only thing I don't like about the cookies is the 4 hour fridge time. I had kahlua syrup so I just used one tbls of that and one of vanilla. Has a good flavor. I might use more kahlua syrup next time...if there's another occasion for me to sit and wait 4 hours before baking my cookies."
"Amazing! Instead of the vanilla chips/chunks, I added 1/2 cup Heath toffee pieces and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts because I had them on hand from something else I made. This is a great cookie. Wonderful consistency and flavor, very easy recipe ... This will become a standard in our house for sure. Thank you for sharing!"
"Omg, I would give these 10 stars if I could.They are so good !!!! They will be on my cookie tray for sure every year.I used the 4 tablespoons of Khalua..You must make them Kitten, you will love em..Thanks for posting it!!!!"
"These cookies are the most delicious cookies I've had! So easy to make, and are even easier to eat!"
"VERY VERY VERY good cookies ! One of the best that I have had in a long time. Vanilla flavored with kahula. You cant beat this. The softness, and chewiness was outstanding. A very nice treat for us tonight. Made for Zaar Stars."
"Not putting any stars as clearly this didn't work for me as it was intended. The dough was really brown unlike the photos that have been posted up, and solidified when I chilled it overnight. I melted it a bit and baked them, but they spread out quite a bit and went very hard. They taste great but just aren't soft or gooey. Anyone know what might have gone wrong?"
"Very good cookies. I made them with only egg yolks. I also mixed half chocolate and white chocolate chips. I love the taste of the Kahula in these. I had them in the fridge overnight and they baked up nicely in the morning. Made and Reviewed in support of Kittencal. My thoughts and prayers are with you. :)"
"Haven't made yet but these sound wonderful! In answer to Anita de la Costa, watch this video (both parts) for some tips on how to alter cookie consistency. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZB-KVveLp3k and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWoN0PtsIIQ&feature=related"
"Delish! I've made these several times and didn't review, but they're delicious. I prefer them with dark chocolate chips. I've used with vanilla-flavored kahlua and homemade kahlua- delish both times! Thanks Kittencal, your recipes are great."
"Just awesome! I actually liked them better the next day. I love the distinct flavor- a nice twist compared to the classic toll house. Thanks!"
"YUM! These are big AND DELICIOUS! My second batch I added a few less of the white choc. chips."
"Very very Good! Made them per recipe! Excellent! However, the second time around I experimented. So here goes! Sub. Wheat flour for regular flour, ran out of Kahlua the first time, so I sub. 1/4 cup Folgers coffee and 1 Tablespoon Irish Cream. Used only 1/4 cup white sugar, two eggs, chocolate chips, and baked for 15 minutes. Mercy Sakes Alive!! Awesom!! Thanks for sharing!"
