THE RECIPE

Irish Cream White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies spiked with Irish love

Are you one of those people who really looks forward to an ice cold glass of Irish cream liqueur after dinner? Wait, that’s only us? Either way, a rich, vanilla-laden Irish cream like Bailey’s (or your favorite brand) is best known in the cocktail world. With its sweet flavor and creamy consistency, Irish cream adds a ton of flavor and just the right amount of kick to an after-dinner drink. But did you know that you can bake with it as well? In this recipe, Jen spikes her white chocolate chip cookie recipe with a healthy glug of Irish cream for a boozy kick that’s perfect for your St. Paddy’s Day party. These cookies are sweet, soft, and chewy with just the right amount of alcohol to know that you’re enjoying a dessert for grown ups. Make sure to have a tall glass of milk nearby…or just another glass of Irish cream…to dunk the cookies into.
