Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookies are delicious chocolate chip cookies with Baileys Irish Cream liqueur mixed.
I have lots of really yummy chocolate chip cookie recipes, and I definitely have a favorite chocolate chip recipe … but this recipe is a refreshing change of pace. I have baked chocolate chip cookies in the past with alcohol (hello, bourbon!). It’s always fun to do this because people love their alcoholic pastries (think Rum Balls or Guinness chocolate cake. This Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is a delicious new cookie recipe to try!
Do Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookies taste like alcohol?
These cookies don’t taste like alcohol! They have a hint of the Baileys flavor in the baked cookie, but they certainly aren’t overwhelmed by the Irish cream flavor.
Interestingly, there is a product being sold that can make these cookies an even bigger Irish Cream theme. Look for Baileys Irish Cream Chips! If you don’t order them from Amazon, you might be able to find them at Walmart or elsewhere. Otherwise, use your favorite chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.
Can I replace the Baileys with something else?
Well these are cookies that contain alcohol so if you don’t want a cookie with alcohol I suggest you try baking my One Bowl chocolate chip cookies or these cookies with secret ingredient chocolate chips. If you want a slightly different flavor, try using Kahlua in place of Irish Cream liqueur.
How to store chocolate chip cookies:
Store chocolate chip cookies in a covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days. If you want to freeze the cookies, place them in a sealed container, separating the layers using waxed paper. Cookies will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature when you feel like eating a Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookie!
What is the texture of these chocolate chip cookies?
The texture of Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookies is smooth and slightly chewy. These are not cake cookies. And they’re strong enough to stack.
