Day 34: Baileys Irish Cream Cookies

This cookie is definitely for the older kids. By older kids, I mean those that are 21 and over.  In addition the the Kiss me, I'm Irish! Cookies I brought a special cookie for the adults. I added Baileys Irish Cream not only to the cookie dough, but made a glaze out of it too. We had to put a big sign: NOT FOR KIDS! next to these cookies to make sure one wasn't

Baileys Irish Cream Cookies

For Cookies
1/2 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup Bailey’s Irish Cream
2 1/4 cups four (I used bread flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of shredded coconut (optional)

For Glaze
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
3 teaspoons of Baileys Irish Cream
Melted Dark Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugars, add egg. Beat until fluffy.

add vanilla and Baileys

Mix in dry ingredients and coconut
Spoon dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes (mine came out perfectly at 11 minutes). Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Mix Baileys into 1/4 cup of powdered sugar ONE teaspoon at a time.

Stir together until your desired consistency is reached.


In a small bowl, melt dark chocolate chips in the microwave (about 40 seconds).

Once cookies have cooled, drizzle Baileys glaze and dark chocolate over the tops.

I did attempt to make a four leaf clover on one cookie. That was as fancy as I got.

Who needs green beer on St. Patrick's Day when you can have these??!!
