Kahlua in cookies doesn't make a noticeable difference in flavor. Espresso, however, does. The price difference between Kahlua and espresso is considerable, especially if we use the gleanings from the pot to bake cookies. So, coffee flavored cookies will be flavored with real coffee and not a coffee liqueur.
This tidbit of experimental information is brought to you from the working kitchen of Manager, because Moneybags doesn't have either coffee or Kahlua in the house.
But Manager's Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies with Almonds were tasty. Only a small amount of adjustment is needed to make them near perfect.
I think the addition of cherries might be nice, in place of the almonds.
