Basic Dough:

Other ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon Kahlua
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together 1/2 cup butter and granulated sugar with electric mixer until well combined and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until well combined.
  • In a separate small bowl mix together flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Beat into butter/sugar mixture until well combined. Wrap dough up in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until well chilled (can refrigerate overnight or up to a few days).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray baking sheets with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper or silpats.
  • Roll the cookie dough out on parchment paper, silpat, or waxed paper. Until about a 1/4-inch thick. Cut dough into squares about 2 1/2-inch in diameter. Reroll dough and cut until dough is used up. Cut each square in half into 2 triangles.
  • Place triangles on baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 14-17 minutes or until lightly browned underneath. Cool slightly then place on wire racks to cool completely.
  • Place chocolate chips, Kahlua, milk, and 1 teaspoon butter in small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on half power in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth.
  • Using a fork, drizzle chocolate over cookies. Cool completely for chocolate to set (or place in refrigerator to expedite cooling).


SNAPPY TIPS: The cookie dough can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days until you’re ready to bake.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Try any kind of Liqueur or substitute milk or use a little vanilla. You could also use Kahlua (or liqueur) of choice in the cookie dough instead of vanilla.
