Homemade Baileys!

Baileys!! Here you see my homemade version. I highly recommend making it— tastes great! Though the store-bought stuff is will work perfectly deliciously also.

There are just a few tablespoons of the Baileys in the cookies. It gives the cookies a hint of Baileys, Baileys’ Kissed, subtle Baileys flavor.

Using part butter and part shortening makes the cookies spread a little, but not too much (butter spreads, shortening holds it’s shape) creating the perfect texture, sized, and shape cookie!

I brought these into work last week. Definitely well received.

You should try– here’s the recipe!

Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Ingredients:
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
3/4 cup butter
2 1/2 cups light brown sugar
6 Tablespoons Baileys
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups chocolate chips (I actually used 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chunks from Trader Joe’s + 1 cup milk chocolate chips)

Directions:
1) Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats. Set aside.
2) In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
3) In a different large bowl, using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, whip together the butter, shortening, and sugar. Beat the mixture really well, until fully combined and fluffy.
4) Add in the Baileys, vanilla, and eggs. Mix on medium speed until fully incorporated.
5) Now, slowly incorporate the flour mixture. Make sure to mix on a low speed and gradually add in the flour. You may have to stop the mixer and scrap down the sides with a rubber spatula.
6) Add in the chocolate chips/chunks. Mix again until the chocolate is evening distributed throughout the dough.
7) Using a small-sized cookie scoop, scoop the dough out onto the cookie sheets. Leave about an inch between each cookie.
8) Bake them in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until the edge just start to brown. Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes, then remove them to a wire cooling rack.
9) Continue until you’ve used all of the dough.
10) YUM try a cookie!!! Yes, as always, I recommend trying ’em warm from the oven. Really the best way to enjoy a cookie…or any baked treat!
