Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

Each member of my family has their preferred version of chocolate chip cookie. My son will only eat the classic version and nothing else – he is a purist!

The rest of us are more willing to try new versions because, well . . . why not?! There is something magical about chocolate chip cookies whether it is the classic, your personal favorite,  or a fun new variation.

I usually have a bottle of Baily Irish Cream on hand but liquor stores usually carry mini bottles if you don’t want to buy a big bottle. These cookies are fantastic and are completely appropriate any time of year – although I do encourage making a batch for St. Patrick’s Day!

If you prefer to make these without any alcohol, check the Notes at the bottom for a couple of ideas!
