Hey everyone, I was looking to make the Chocolate Rolled Cookies from Kitchengifts.com and it says to use strong coffee or chocolate liqueur. For those of you that have used this recipe which do you prefer?
I am still tweaking to come up with a chocolate cookie recipe that I like, but I did try that with both options, using Godiva liqueur. I much preferred the strong coffee over the liqueur. Coffee helps bring out the depth of the chocolate. I found the liqueur not to be as effective in doing so. What I would like to do now is find a recipe that incorporates melted chocolate as well as I think that will add richness.
Mmm, melted chocolate would be ideal! Thanks so much Tracy!
These cookies are awesome........almost NO spreading at all (rolled to 1/4" thick) and if you don't overbake them, they taste like fudgey brownies .....mmmmmmmmm so good!
Here is a pic so you can see how nice and dark the dough is, I love these cookies!
I like the borwnie rollout cookies from Smitten Kitchen.
Oh, thank you both!!!! This is so very much appreciated!!
KHalstead - Those are just too, too cute!
Ironically enough, i just tried the brownie roll out cookie recipe today. They taste amazing but are slightly difficult to decorate. Because they stay soft, i had a couple break off while i was holding them to ice.
luv2bake6 - Oh, that is very good to know. I ship a lot of my cookies, so I appreciate you passing that on.
I was just looking for a rolled chocolate cookie recipe. Thanks khalstead.
Can I also just say you all are amazing and such an inspiration! I lurk alot and post every so often. Thank you to everyone for being so amazing and gratious. I feel like you are all friends.
I also use the brownie roll-out cookie recipe from Smitten Kitchen and I love it. It keeps its shape beautifully and while it does stay soft, I haven't had any problems with them falling apart. I've also shipped them successfully to Alaska; if you package them properly there should be no issues.
I use the one posted by Punkinwaffles (hope I have that username right) here, they don't spread and have a great flavor.
I also love the pumpkinwaffles recipe!
