#FBLCookieExchange

I

did a food blogger cookie exchange last year. It was the #FBLCookieExchange. It was so nice. I got 3 dozen cookies, one dozen from 3 different bloggers.

So when it was announced that the food blogger cookie exchange was happening again, I signed up right away. Last year I created the Dark Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies. I had many ideas on what to give my fellow bloggers I was assigned:

Salted Caramel Kahlua Glazed Sugar Cookies is simply a sugar cookie that is glazed with Salted Caramel Kahlua for that something special. This cookie will be the hit of your cookie exchange.

The original idea I had to send to these bloggers, was an Italian Pesche Cookie. However, my schedule at work, plus a chronic fatigue I am experiencing right now, I simply ran out of time to do a cookie that is a little complex, like the Pesche Cookie. So I have had in the back of my mind doing a cookie with Salted Caramel Kahlua.

The thought of creating a Salted Caramel Kahlua Glazed Sugar Cookies has been in the back of my mind since last Christmas. I was at Walmart and saw a display of seasonal Kahlua, once of which was Salted Caramel. When I saw it was back again this year, I felt that I could make a nice glaze using it for a baked good.

First I was thinking like a spice cookie with the Salted Caramel Kahlua, but the more I kept thinking, plus my time crunch, sugar cookies seemed to be the best call. Using my recipe for Classic Cut Out Sugar Cookies, I made these basic sugar cookies. Trust me the Salted Caramel Kahlua Glaze really complemented those cookies.

Think of it this way, they are the adult sugar cookie. Sometimes Santa needs a little something in his cookies, and these Salted Caramel Kahlua Glazed Sugar Cookies are perfect for him. Plus they would be great for your Christmas Cookie exchange as well.

    1. Cream sugar and butter with a mixer until fluffy.
    2. Add egg and extracts and mix well.
    3. Sift the cream of tartar, baking soda, and flour together and stir into creamed mixture.

    5. Preheat oven to 375º. and divide dough in half.
    6. Roll out on a surface lightly dusted with confectioner's sugar.

    Glaze:

    Combine the sugar and Kahlua in a bowl. Stir until you have a thin glaze. If it is too thick add another teaspoon of the Kahlua.

      This Santa’s helper definitely did not share the cookies. After the first bite I hid them and savored every last crumb!
