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 Pumpkin Ginger Scones and Blueberry Scones recipes). 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 the origins of Irish Cream.
Still got some Irish Cream on-hand? You really need to try my Baileys Irish Cream Brownies. They are one of our favorite brownie recipes.
