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!
