I just realized it’s been almost a month since my last Sugar Friday post. A month. Wow, that’s a long time to go without some sweet inspiration, non? Now that it’s fall, and spritzer and salad days are far behind us, I thought I’d capture the essence of the season with a hard-to-resist, fatten-up-for-winter cookie.
These Salted Mudslide Cookies are just what you need on a chilly, windy day, when you’re best tucked under a throw with a good book. It doesn’t taste exactly like the alcoholic drink, but you can’t complain when a cookie recipe calls for alcohol! I used Kahlua, but I think next time I make it (and there will be a next time) I’ll try Bailey’s Irish Cream. You can use practically any kind of coffee liqueur, though. The post mentions sprinkling sea salt flakes on top (I hope this foodie fad never dies) but I didn’t have any and found that regular coarse sea salt worked perfectly. I found this recipe via Pinterest, which directed me to its origin, How Sweet It Is, a totally adorable blog by self-taught cook and baker, Jessica. Her mudslide cookies are sweet, chocolatey, gooey, and boozy, and I think it’d be a fabulous idea to serve them as dessert for a holiday dinner alongside alcoholic coffees or even coffee liqueur on the rocks. Hey, it’s fall, time to warm yourself from the inside out. Enjoy!
