I found this recipe on Books n Cooks and decided to give it a try. I'm not a coconut fan, so I omitted that. I personally didn't like the Bailey's. I thought it took away from the divinity of a chocolate chip cookie. However, I really liked the texture using cake flour produced. I think I'll have to try adapting a chocolate chip recipe and use cake flour one of these days.
1/2 c. unsalted butter
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. Bailey’s original Irish cream liquor
2 1/4 c. cake flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. coconut (omitted)
- Preheat oven to 375F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter, sugars and eggs on high-speed until fluffy.
- Add vanilla and Bailey’s until combined.
- Add cake flour, baking soda and salt.
- With a rubber spatula, fold in chocolate chips and coconut.
- Using a tablespoon, drop dough on prepared baking sheets.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes.
