Kahlua and Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie Recipe

 Kahlua and Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie Recipe plus Hidden Candy Cookie

Continuing my quest for a great cookie improved with a bit of my favorite libations may I present - Kahlua and Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie!
 
I've been making this recipe since 2003 and found the recipe on AllRecipes.com. This cookie has never let me down. It's a super simple cookie - a little plain but full of flavor. The original recipe calls for almond and vanilla extracts but I replaced them with Kahlua. It is a very subtle flavor and there is hardly any in there to worry about feeding them to the ankle-biters.

This dough is very sticky! The best way to work with it is cold. If I can't refrigerate over night, I put it in the freezer for an hour before trying to work with it on a floured surface.

Baked cookies for Kahlua and Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie Recipe

After they have cooked, use a small brush to brush water or Kahlua to make the sprinkles stick. I like that the Kahlua gave it a brown tint but water, obviously will not tint the cookie.

I don't know about you but I actually hate to make sugar cookie cut-outs but I love their look. By the time I am half way through the batter I am done and I switch gears to make Hidden Candy Cookies. I take mini candies, like Snickers or Milky Way (my favorite) or whatever is leftover from Halloween and wrap the dough around the candy, roll into a ball, and bake.
