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!
