Cookie Thursday 3/16/23-Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

What I was gonna do? This week also has Pi Day in it. You know, 3.1459, etc. I read about a Venn Diagram Pie. For this three pies are needed, and a cut-out for the intersection part. Three flavors are needed, with the intersection pie being a combination of the other 2. As I was working out how to do this, I decided it was too complicated and would be hard to serve. If I have learned anything about serving up cookies weekly for EIGHT years, it is that the simplest cookies are best.

And tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, a high holy holiday in my book. And, in keeping with the theme of the month, the recipe had to be something I had not baked in months. Reminder, the theme of the month is Blast from the Past. I made these cookies during one of the two Booze theme months. These were January 2021 and January 2022, where I had recipes for cookies that included alcohol. Why these months? Do you not remember the complete shitshows 2020 and 2021? Especially in healthcare?

I digress. And I’ve already written about covid this week.

The cookie for this week has ingredients that I don’t normally use, Bailey’s Irish Cream and espresso powder. There is a good coffee flavor to it.

I have been baking exclusively for CTIAT in my lower oven. This isn’t ideal because of the time that it takes to pre-heat, or the energy used running it. I am going to give the top oven a good cleaning and see if that improves the evenness of the baking.

Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c butter, room temperature

1 c brown sugar

1/2 c sugar

3-4 tbsp Bailey’s Irish Cream, more if desired

2 tsp vanilla

2 tsp baking soda (I’ve been using more these days)

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp espresso powder

2 c chocolate chips

Combine all the ingredients, and bake in a 375 degree oven 10-12 minutes
