How does a baker celebrate getting into BAKING school? Is it by having a shot of alcohol? Of course not! It's by baking some cookies and adding the alcohol into the batter of course! I was so excited when I finally got into my program, because I have been waiting so long for that acceptance letter. I cannot wait to go to school in September! So congratulations to me, I baked cookies with Bailey's in them! These were fantastiiiic cookies! So so good, and the smell, oh I cannot even tell you. I love the smell of Bailey's, I love the taste of Bailey's, I love absolutely everything about it. These are definitely going to be made again because they are fantastic, especially when you're craving some alcohol but don't want to actually drink it.
