Subject: Caitrin's Cookie Recipe
From: Caitrin
Date: 27 Jan 00 - 10:56 AM

If anyone has come here because his or her cookie won't reset, this is the wrong place. : ) Some people on ICQ last night had expressed an interest in my non-electronic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I got booted from ICQ before I could give it. So...here it is.

Ingredients:
3 eggs
1 lb. light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 tbs. vanilla
1 lb. butter, softened
6 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 12 oz. packages Ghirardelli choc chips (one bag semi-sweet, one bag milk chocolate)I use Ghirardelli because the chips are bigger, but that's really just a personal preference)
5 cups walnut chunks
1/2 cup Kahlua

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. In one bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Four into large mixing bowl. Really large. This makes a lot of batter. Add softened butter to eggs. Add sugars and vanilla and mix to combine. Add 1/4 cup of Kahlua and mix in well. Now measure out the six cupos of flour, Sifting each cup into a yet another bowl as you measure. Once all six cups are measured and sifted, add salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix well with a fork or whisk. Now add the dry ingredients slowly (about one cup at a time) to the egg mixture. Periodically mix in the remaining 1/4 cup of Kahlua. Once batter is done, fold chocolate chips and nuts into mixture. (Be sure to use a sturdy spoon...a friend of mine broke the handle off of a wooden spoon in this batter!)
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and use an ice cream scoop to drop batter onto paper. (I can usually fit about 6 cookies on a cookie sheet.) Bake the cookies for 15 minutes and let them cool for at least 5 before attempting to move them. Makes about 50 cookies.
Hope you enjoy them!

You should be able to find it in the nearest liquor store -- it's a coffee-flavored alcohol, strong and tropical tasting. Used for really fancy-pants drinks with little umbrellas in them!! .

Thanks for the info and Allan for the link.

Jon, one time I was making these and only had about 1/4 cup of Kahlua, and I substituted bourbon for the rest...it might work for the whole half cup. Or maybe Bailey's Irish Cream...It's at least worth a shot.
Glad you liked them, Aine!

Ya know Alice, the LAST grass I did was in some really fudgy Brownies and I found myself going something just over 10 mph on I-70 with one part of my brain saying "Speed up Asshole, the cops are goin' ta gitcha'" while the other part screamed "TOO FAST!!!"

I figured that would about do it....until the next night when my friend baked another batch and I was riding home at 3 AM on my 903 and kept looking down 'cause I thought my feet were on fire.

Of course it's not the cookies that are the problem, it's what you do with the rest of the bottle after you've poured the 1/2 cup into the dough.

Kahlua and cream.... Very nice evening treat, and it is not one with an umbrella. I think I have a Kahlua recipe around somewhere. Friends made it as Christmas gifts one year and gave the recipe along with the bottle. The best price on Kahlua, of course, is in Mexico... and no guzano (worm) in the bottom like mescal has.

**************CAITRIN'S KAHLUA COOKIE UPDATE!************* LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I am here to tell you this is the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever tried. I split the recipe in 1/2, and made 1/2 with Kahlua and 1/2 with Bailey's....both are aboslutely SCRUMPTIOUS!!!Nice and chewy, and full of chocolate!! I think I actually prefer the Bailey's ones, just a hint of Irish Cream.....ummm, good. Definitely worth a trip to the store. Oh, yeah, the little airline size mini bottles are exactly 1/4 cup each, so all you people who are worried about leftovers, just buy the little ones instead. BTW, the recipe halves beautifully. THANKS, CAITRIN!!!!!

Well, the Little Guys tend to stay out of sight in my kitchen lest they get stepped on or run over by frapping Corgis. I can however, testify that 15 yr old females can eat more than six. The gentleman with the "Enhanced Grain Storage Center" is sleeping, so he hasn't tried them yet. It's so cold here that I think all the bahn-sidhe's have hibernated for the winter in empty Bailey's bottles. Mbo & Alice-- I DO NOT have either pink elephants or spiders in my kitchen....I relegate same to the desolate garden. Kitchen space is reserved for empty Bailey's bottles.

Goodnight, Caitrin McGillicuddy, wherever you are! Farewell ,sweet Aine, until the morrow; When cookies shall dispel all mortal sorrow.

I've got a recipe for 17th Century cakes (actually they're big soft cookies like Easter biscuits) that have cream and sherry in them. Ran out of sherry once and used madiera instead...... MMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....! anyone interested?

(I've made them with my home made beetroot wine for lack of any other alcohol, the beetroot wine had fermented twice - that was interesting!)

Caitrin and the Geeks (Tune: Bar'bry ellen)

When Caitrin to this thread appeared,
Her cookies were appealing!
And soon the galley in my house
Was a mess from floor to ceiling!

I stirred and poured and measured out, And ruined several aprons!
I broke my wristbone stirring dough
Designed by charmin' Caitrin!

And when the over doors had closed
And I was done with messing!
I said a prayer to the Cookie God
And asked for Caitrin's blessing.

And when the baking smell arose
I thought it most auspicious
I gobbled down the first one out!
That cookie was delicious!

I ate another few just then
And kept on madly baking!
And soon the counters were all full
And the table nigh to breaking!

Then slowly, slowly, I stood up
My awe for Caitrin mounting!
So many cookies, ne'er I'd seen,
Too many far for counting!

I stacked them up on platters high
When my own waistline was dragging.
And staggered with them to the door
They filled my station wagon.

Then to the office I repaired
All carbo'd out and laggard!
And down the hall, to a table there,
With Caitrin's cakes I staggered.

'Twas early early, in the morn
When first I brought such plenty!
But before noon, I swear 'tis true
The platters all stood empty!

So if you have too many made,
Ye need not trash or bail them!
Just bring them to a Software House
And let the geeks inhale them!!

Thanks for the yummie cookies!

A

Amos - the translator I was using just puts the english into brackets if it doesn't have a correspondence. it was "cat's" rather then "pajamas" that didn't translate the most....maybe because possessive? I'll have to try again using "the pajamas of the cat"

Tomorrow is Thurs, and I'm not doing anything (yet) so I will sort out the recipe. They aren't Shrewsbury cakes, that is a much flatter, biscuit (cookie) recipe. These are just 17th Century, and have raisins in them.

I don't do the cup thing....... Orthe metric thing, heck, I've only just stopped counting the sticks of firewood out for the stove!

8 ounces (oz) plain flour
4 oz unsalted butter
2 oz brown sugar
2 oz caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg or cinnamon
8 oz currants or raisins - these can be soaked in sherry if you like......
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon cream
1 small measure sherry, sweeter the better. Any sweetish, fortified wine can be used, like Madeira, white port... it is supposed to be sack, an old English drink that was sweetish and quite alcoholic. Anything than drink the water....

Rub the butter and flour together until crumbly. Add sugar, spices and currants. Mix well. Add the other ingredients and mix to a stiff dough. If it is too sticky, add more flour. On a floured board, roll out to about half an inch thick (the thickness of the average wooden spoon handle - a use for the one that broke making Caitrins' cookies earlier....) and cut into rounds with a large cutter or the wide end of a pint glass. Prick with a fork and bake in a moderate oven - gas mark a5, 350f or 180c. Turn out to cool on a rack and dust with caster sugar before cool.

Enjoy - they can be used as Easter biscuits if you like, they are similar in construction, but a bit richer with the cream and sherry and that.....
