Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies



Sometimes I fancy chewing my liquor, instead of nipping it…

And this is the cookie that meets that criterion!






This cookie has great flavors ~ Bailey’s Irish Cream ~ coconut and chocolate.  They taste like Bailey’s and even smell like it.  Due to the cake flour, they have a light texture.  This is definitely a grown-up cookie, with a slight hint of whiskey making them appealing. 






Note the large amount of cookies this recipe makes.  They go fast; therefore, I make 6 dozen at a time ~ halve it, if that suits you better.  I like pecans in cookies, but some family members do not, so I omit them in this recipe. If you like them, add 1 cup of chopped pecans.

These irresistible cookies are a bit boozy, a bit sweet, and a whole lot tender ~ a perfect Christmas treat for your family and friends too!

They sound delicious Pam, but I could never pour a cup of Baileys into cookie dough :-)

Oh these cookies are simply scrumptious. It should be wonderful for the coming celebration. But before that let us pray for the people in Newtown. What a shocking & horrible news!

I'm with Larry. I'd have a hard time parting with a whole cup of Baileys into cookie batter but they have to taste delicious :)
