Kahlúa Gingerbread ... Gingerbread

I know. It's obvious. But it's holiday time, and I wanted to decorate some cookies. And I have to say, if you decide to get one egregiously holiday-themed product this year, this is not a bad one to choose (especially compared to Pringles Peppermint or whatever). Straight, it tastes a bit like sweet coffee made with ashes, but mix in some hot milk and by golly you got a nog goin'!

Plus, of all the ridiculous liquors I've gotten, this one seems to make the most sense, baking-wise. Why bother with nutmeg and cinnamon and actual ginger when you can just use a dollop of Kahlúa Gingerbread? Cut your prep time in half! Set it and forget it! 

Kahlúa Gingerbread Gingerbread (Gingerbread^2) Cookies

Whisk together 3 cups flour, 1/4 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt in a bowl. Or in a jar? These recipes always specify using a bowl, as if you're going to throw these fine, powdery ingredients on a plate or on the griddle. Just mix them! You're smart enough!

In another bowl, beat 6 Tbsp softened butter and 3/4 cups packed brown sugar (I used dark). Add 1 egg and beat until blended. Then add 1/4 cup dark molasses, 1/4 cup Kahlúa Gingerbread, and 1/2 Tbsp water. Little by little, beat in the flour mixture, until you can't really beat it anymore and you have to turn it onto a floured surface and knead in the rest. If the 3 cups of flour wasn't enough, knead in some more, until it's juuuuust not sticky. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.

After that, roll the dough out on your floured surface until it's about 1/4 inch thick. Then it's time to cut things out! Use cookie cutters, cans, knives, whatever. Make fun shapes. This is the best part of your holiday. Savor it. Then put all those shapes on a cookie sheet and bake 11-15 minutes at 375.

They look pretty good! Icing will cover the lumps.

This is actually the most flavorful gingerbread cookie I can remember having, though maybe it's just because I've now trained my taste buds to enjoy baked goods with a tang of alcohol. But no matter, because IT'S TIME TO DECORATE!

Make a dude wearing a thong!

Or a lady with a pearl necklace! (You decide if it's the gross kind!)

Or maybe a woman who's pregnant with Sour Patch Kids!

Or a nice duck!

Or Athena!

The possibilities are as endless as your candy supply, and if you're like me and went to a Festivus party with a pinata, then that supply will be quite large.

Wacky: in the same Kahlua/holiday season theme, I just posted about making Kahlua balls. (Warning: there are so many possible jokes contained within that that I couldn't pick one and just ignored them).

@thebestjasmine OREOS, HOLY SHIT. We make brandy balls with Nilla wafers in my house but Oreos sounds like some next-level amazingness.

sheistolerable

@thebestjasmine Do you have to keep them refrigerated because of the milk in Kahlua? Or am I thinking of Bailey's? Anyway, sounds tasty.

thebestjasmine

@anachronistique Yes, our rum balls (or bourbon balls) usually use Nilla wafers, but I think I love the Oreo ones even more! (My mom is anti). And @sheistolerable, nope, no milk in Kahlua. Though it is delicious in milk.

OhMarie

@thebestjasmine YUM-O. I bought a bottle of mocha peppermint Kahlua as my egregiously holiday-themed food item this year and it's actually pretty delicious.

That Athena is awesome!

@Valley Girl The green hair is giving me much more of a Medusa vibe, even though I know it's supposed to be an olive wreath.

"Sweet coffee made with ashes."
May I suggest you not pursue a career in marketing?

@Rock and Roll Ken Doll I'm such a nice guy I am going to actually bake and eat you, Athena, thong dude.

My sister likes to take twenty minutes to do really, really detailed gingerbread decorations. We're talking painting with toothpicks. I think my favorite was the semi-deformed bird that she turned into a shark.

wee_ramekin

I'm sorry, but you can't say you're going to "get a nog goin'" without expecting me to MS Paint something like this:

Jaya

@wee_ramekin From the bottom of my heart, thank you for this.

KeLynn

I love Athena. I legitimately might pinterest this.

Also! Cookie cutting fact that might be obvious but was not to me until I recently learned it! Roll the dough out on parchment or silpat on a baking sheet. Cut your cookies, then just lift the "negative space" dough off. Then you don't have to relocate them to the baking sheet and you reduce your risk of warping them.

theotherginger

@KeLynn I'm going to bake tomorrow or Friday with my brother and this might revolutionize our plans.

bocadelperro

@KeLynn I never thought of that and it is brilliant! Thank you! I'm so excited I'm making this face !!

Why did I not know that kahlua gingerbread existed? I am more or less teetotal and only like booze that tastes like dessert, so this is perfect!

@Es The peppermint mocha kahlua is fantastic as well.

@serenityfound

@Ten Thousand Buckets As is the Hazelnut! It's so light and tasty.

@@serenityfound Oh good lord all the Kahluas!! I had absolutely no idea it came in flavours. Now I'm going to end up a drink and it's all the Hairpin's fault. It was bad enough when I discovered cinnamon whisky.

Probs

Your comic is cool! I like McWoof and his anti-racism admonisment.

@serenityfound

Baking with booze is possibly my favorite hobby, so this is relevant to my interest. Also, if you make Kahlua Bundts like I do, totally swap in Hazelnut Kahlua for the regular kind. Actually, just go get and drink a lot of Hazelnut Kahlua. You're welcome.
