Today Santa left the food section of the Minneapolis Tribune containing some prize winning Christmas cookie recipe’s on my front porch! Whoever left them thank you, I always like to try one or two new recipes during the holidays! I have decided that since we have cancelled our family Christmas get together I am going to send each family a package of goodies so this week I will be in my kitchen. I wasn’t going to put many decorations up this year but when I got started I was on a roll so even though it will be just the two of us it will look festive!
I have several variations of the good all American Chocolate chip cookie but a couple of weeks ago a long time friend sent me a new take, I would say that this Chocolate chip cookie rates to be a Holiday cookie try it and see what you think!
Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookie
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. espresso powder or instant coffee
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tablespoons Bailey’s Irish cream liquor
2 room temperature eggs
12 oz. chocolate chips
Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and espresso powder, set aside. Combine sugar and butter, beat until light and fluffy about 2 minutes then add vanilla and bailey’s Irish cream liquor, mix then beat in eggs one at a time. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, mix in the dry ingredients, fold in chocolate chips. Chill dough for 2 hours or up to three days. Roll one Tablespoon of dough in a ball and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 min. Let cool for a couple of minutes before removing from pan.
Have a great week and stay safe!
