Oh, no – She didn’t!!!
Oh, yes – I did!
I added Bailey’s Irish Cream to chocolate chip cookies.
No regrets.

There are like, 6 things I regret in life and adding booze to chocolate chip cookies ain’t one of ‘em.
So, um… These cookies.
Ok, listen – I have this gigantic bottle of Bailey’s. I need to make a serious dent in said gigantic bottle of Bailey’s, and I’m not even a quarter of the way through.

Do you understand WHY this had to happen? That, and boozy chocolate chip cookies are the shit. Why haven’t I thought of these before?
Shit, why haven’t you?

Alright, the mix is simple.
Butter. Unsalted. Get you some. The butter is mixed with light, dark, and granulated sugar.
Why?
Because I was precariously low on sugar, and these cookies HAD TO HAPPEN, and those measurements in the recipe? That was all the sugar I had available, people.
Eggs. Just two here.

I contemplated one whole egg, plus one egg yolk. I decided against it.

  1. Because I’m lazy. Ain’t nobody got time for separating huevos.
  2. I can crack an egg and pour the contents into a mixing bowl like a pro. You should see me.

 

*crack, pour*
Pro shit.
An insane amount of vanilla extract is added, along with the Bailey’s Irish Cream. I toyed with the idea of adding 1/3 cup of Bailey’s. I settled for ¼ cup with room for improvement instead.
The flour mixture has a bit of cocoa powder and cornstarch in it. Cocoa powder for complexity, cornstarch for that soft chew.
The dough will be super soft due to all that extra liquid (the Baileys, especially) and must be chilled for at least an hour.

Don’t be slick and attempt to bake cookies straight out of the mixer. You’ll end up with one giant cookie situation. I’m not opposed to giant cookie situations. I’m not; however, these cookies need to be enjoyed individually.
Once the dough chills, bake ‘em.
Leave them under baked. Unless you like your cookies crunchy. I don’t judge.
Grab a glass of milk, settle in.

Relish in the flavor of a childhood favorite, now boozy as hell.
