These are way too delicious/ addicting. BE CAREFUL KIDS. You can DEFINITELY taste the Bailey's.
These have been my absolute favorite Christmas cookies since I discovered this recipe 10 years ago! The deep cocoa flavor of the cookie goes perfectly with the sweet Bailey's cream filling, and the cookies are just the perfect size. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
