I seem to be on a quest for creating alcoholic baked goods. See: Rum Cake, Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes and Irish Coffee Cupcakes. No one has complained yet. I'm on the fence about these but it should be noted that I'm diseased and my taste buds are all out of whack because I'm pretty positive that these cookies didn't actually taste like dayquil. Mr. Lawyer, Amanda and Banks (our doorman) all raved about them and declared I was crazy.
Mudslide Cookies

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
3 tablespoons instant coffee powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup coffee liqueur
1 cup chocolate chunks
sea salt for topping
1. Mix the flour, cocoa, coffee powder, salt and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl, mix the melted butter and sugars until they are combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until mixed. Stream in coffee liqueur and mix. Gradually add flour and mix until a dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chunks. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Remove dough from the fridge and roll into golfball sized balls. Set on a non-stick baking sheet with 2 inches between each. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set and the middles are still soft. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with sea salt.
