Deliciously soft Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies are scrumptious – the taste of Bailey’s without the booze! You won’t want to eat just one!
Today we’re talking about chocolate chip cookies. But not just any chocolate chip cookies – these cookies are spiked with Bailey’s Irish cream Chocolate Chips!
While I think most people would agree that chocolate chip cookies are in fact perhaps the #1 comfort food, any twist is welcomed. This twist includes the addition of Bailey’s Irish Cream chocolate chips.
To enhance the flavor even more, I’ve added vanilla extract and cinnamon – yum!
These delicious morsels are so popular that they can be difficult to find in stores. If you can’t locate them in Walmart or your favorite grocer, pick them up on Amazon.
Or check out Instacart to find them in a grocery store near you and have them delivered to your doorstep (Safeway has them!) At just around $4/bag they are pretty affordable.
Stock up and buy several bags just to have them at your fingertips when you need to make these delicious cookies.
The Taste of Bailey’s without the Booze
The best thing about Bailey’s is that Irish cream is boozy. The chips skip the alcohol but manage to capture the trademark taste of their Irish cream liqueur in a chip that’s safe for everyone to nosh on.
The advantage to the Irish cream chips is that you get that classic taste without the alcohol. (In case you crave the flavor but not the tipsiness that comes with it.)
Before you get started on these cookies, here are some tips for making sure they turn out incredible:
- The recipe calls for unsalted butter. If you prefer salted butter, simply omit the additional salt noted in the recipe.
- It’s imperative that you start with room temperature butter. If your butter is cold, but it into smaller sections and allow it too it out for 20-30 minutes to soften (try to avoid using the microwave!)
- All purpose flour – I don’t recommend anything else!
- Once the cookies are mixed, chill the dough for 20-30 minutes to ensure they spread nice and evenly. Don’t forget that the dough is in the fridge though!
- Bake the cookies just until they start to brown – it’s better to remove from the oven slightly early than overcook. The cookies will continue to cook on the baking sheet once removed!
