salted kahlua chip cookies


It’s Monday (again). We need cookies (again). So we whipped up a batch of these salted kahlua chip cookies. They speak to us…… Chewy, crispy, salty, and chocolate, with a hint of kahlua. Need we say more? We started making these cookies on Mondays to eat while we watched our favorite Monday night tv show (those who know, know). Anyway, it’s Monday, so these cookies are making an appearance!
