These Irish Cream Shortbread Cookies are a delightful soft cookie with just a hint of Irish Cream. They have a scone like consistency
My mom loves Irish Cream. So naturally, she had a great cookie recipe that calls for Irish Cream so here is Mom’s Irish Cream Shortbread Cookies.
These wonderful cookies have a consistency to similar scones (check out my scone recipes here). If you’ve never had scones before, these delicious cookies are like a shortbread cookie.
I am a little disappointed that I don’t have more pictures of these delicious cookies. They were so good that they were gone before I knew it. I guess I will just have to make them again!
Ever wonder where Irish Cream comes from? Well I did so I found this interesting article on Wiki.
Please remember that not all of the alcohol may burn off during the baking process so keep that in mind when serving to children or others that should not be consuming alcohol.
