Chocolate Coffee Liqueur Cookies
Chocolate coffee drop cookies are the perfect cookie recipe for coffee lovers.
5 dozen cookies
1 2/3 cups sugar
1/3 cup brewed coffee, cooled
1/4 cup coffee-flavored liqueur*
2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur**
3 to 4 tablespoons brewed coffee, cooled
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine sugar, 2/3 cup butter, 1/3 cup coffee, 1/4 cup liqueur, eggs, melted chocolate and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; reduce speed to low. Beat until well mixed.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until set. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, combine all frosting ingredients except 3 to 4 tablespoons coffee in medium bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough coffee for desired spreading consistency. Frost cooled cookies. Drizzle with melted chocolate chips, if desired.
