Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Cookies

Step 1

In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer cream the butter and sugars for a minute or two, until light and fluffy.

Combine Butter & Sugars

Scape down the sides of the bowl then mix in the eggs, and vanilla, mix until no trace of the egg is left behind.

Add Egg and Vanilla

Step 2

Add in Bailey's one tablespoon at a time, you want the liquid to be incorporated before adding another tablespoon.

Step 3

Add Baileys

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, instant coffee, baking soda and powder, and salt and mix until combined.

Mix Dry Ingredients 

Step 4

Gently fold in the dry ingredients until just combined

Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients 

Step 5

Next fold in chocolate chips.

Add Chocolate 

Step 6

I prefer to scoop the dough at this point but you could just cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill. If you scoop the dough now it will be very soft, so just before baking I will reshape them and top them with more chocolate chips to make them look prettier.
