Father’s Day is coming up and if you still need a present, I’ve got you covered with the Kahlua Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. My dad and grandfather have always been hard to shop for. However, they have two things in common–they love coffee and sweets. With that in mind, I came up withKahlua Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. The combination of chocolate and Kahlua covered in powdered sugar is pretty amazing. The Boyfriend and I went a little overboard taste testing. These cookies are the perfect dessert for a dad with a sweet tooth!

- 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 2/3 cups All-purpose Flour
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) Unsalted Butter, room temperature
- 1 1/4 cups Granulated Sugar
- 2 Eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
- 6 tablespoons Kahlua
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In another bowl, using a wooden spoon, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes.
- Turn off the mixer and scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add 1 egg and beat on medium speed until blended. Add the other egg, almond extract, and Kahlua and beat until blended.
- Turn off the mixer and add the flour mixture. Beat on low speed just until blended. Chill the dough in the fridge for 1 hour.
- Using a tablespoon, scoop up a rounded spoonful of dough. Scrape the dough off the spoon into the palm of your other hand.
- Roll the dough into a ball. Roll the ball in the confectioners' sugar until covered. Place the balls on a prepared baking sheet. Repeat, spacing the balls about 2 inches apart.
- When 1 baking sheet is full, put it in the oven and bake the cookies until they are crackled and puffed, 10 to 12 minutes.
- Using oven mitts, remove the baking sheet from the oven and set it on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Using a metal spatula, move the cookies onto the rack and let cool completely.

In honor of daughters baking for their fathers, you should watch this amazing clip of T.I.’s daughter, Deyjah, baking cupcakes. “She makes a eggshell flavored cupcake like nobody’s business.” Definitely one of my favorite tv clips.
