I first saw these Bailey’s Chocolate Chips almost a year ago but they were selling for $140 a bag. That wasn’t happening. However, I was thrilled when I discovered them this fall at Walmart for under $4! These chips are flavored like Bailey’s Irish Cream but don’t not contain any alcohol. However, my recipe does but you can easily not add it to the recipe. I did so to enhance the Bailey’s flavor.
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of solid vegetable shortening, I used Crisco
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 Tablespoons of Bailey’s Irish Cream, optional
1 12 ounce bag of Bailey’s Chocolate Chips
Sea salt, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add flour, baking soda and salt to a bowl. Whisk together and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream Crisco and sugars together. Add eggs, vanilla and Bailey’s Irish Cream snd blend. Stir in Bailey’s Chocolate Chips. Drop by spoonfuls on a cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes. I preferred adding sea salt to my cookies because I like sweet and salty and without the salt, in my opinion, these were sweet. I added the salt as soon as they came out of the oven. It’s all a matter of preference, so taste one without the salt and see what you think. Cool on cookie sheet for five minutes and continue cooling on a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container when completely cool. Enjoy!
