Kahlua Cookies

These cookies are absolutely yummy. I found this recipe about two years ago in Cooking Light Magazine. My interest was piqued by the beautiful photo of the cookies,  I immediately open the magazine to that page and scanned the ingredients list.

It took me awhile to make these because back then, I couldn’t find vegetable shortening  and egg substitute where I normally buy my groceries and baking ingredients.  On my first try, I used all butter and for the egg substitute, I used real egg ( 1 egg)  which of course gave me different result; the batter spreads  when baked and gave me thinner cookies, they’re yummy but harder to work with and totally defeats the purpose of the recipe make-over..

Fortunately, I found all the ingredients that I need for these cookies over time and I’ve been baking these cookies whenever we want to and it has become one of our family’s favorites. I have also changed the name to a shorter one, Kahlua cookies instead of it’s original name: Black and White Chocolate chip cookies.

I bake the first batch for exactly the x minutes called for in the recipe and this is how the cookies turned out..quite pale, I like my cookies a little browned so I bake the succeeding batches a few minutes longer..

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons egg substitute ( I used Ovasil)
1 1/2 tablespoons Kahlúa (coffee-flavored liqueur)

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir with a whisk.

Gradually add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until combined. Fold in chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and pecans. Drop by level tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
