A few weeks late, but I really liked how they turned out.
For the holidays, I decided to make some cookies and wrap them up nicely for my friends as just a little gift. I tried a few different recipes, including trying to make macarons three separate times, all three times resulting in complete failure :(.
I ended up sticking with the sugar cookies recipe that I wrote about last post, but added a little alcoholic twist to it. The remaining bottle of Baileys I had sitting around in my room seemed perfect for the occasion. I replaced the sugar in the recipe with the Bailey’s which adds some extra liquid to the recipe softening up the cookies (since the original recipe cookies were a little hard). Also, about halfway through the baking, I lightly brushed the cookies with Baileys to give them the extra shine and flavour.
After the cookies had dried, I placed them in some clear cellophane bags and wrapped it up with some nice fuzzy ribbon. The cookies themselves don’t taste recognizably like Baileys, but add a delicious hint of chocolate to the cookies.
