Here’s another yummy treat that I whipped up using the Homemade Irish Cream that I made earlier this week – Irish Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies!
These cookies are soft, chewy, and oh so tasty. They have a hint of Irish Cream flavor from the Irish Cream liqueur, and I must say that the Irish Cream flavor pairs very well with the chocolate flavor of the chocolate chips.
I may have a bit of an Irish Cream overload if I eat these cookies, the Irish Cream Cupcakes that I made this week, and sip some of the Homemade Irish Cream liqueur all on St. Patrick’s Day – but oh what a delightful way to celebrate the holiday. 🙂
Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day everyone!!
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and egg together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and Irish Cream; mix until combined.
Gradually add dry ingredients to butter mixture and blend well. Fold in chocolate chips.
