Baileys Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Christmas festivities are coming to an end, my beloved brother boarded a plane to head back down under this morning leaving everyone feeling a little deflated. It's hard when Christmas is over, but I also like the fresh start that the New Year brings. I look forward to new and exciting ideas that I can share in the New Year to keep in line with everyone's 'healthy' and well intended new year's resolutions. That said, today's recipe is in keeping with Christmas treats and party time. Delicious double chocolate chip Baileys cookies. On this occasion I actually checked that I had Baileys before starting out, not like the evening I ended up making  Kahlua Christmas Cookies. These Baileys cookies are bursting with flavour, are chewy but  with a little crunch.....perfect!

Baileys Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 10-12 Cookies

275g self-raising flour
1/2 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp. salt
170g butter
220g dark brown sugar 
100g sugar
30ml Baileys Irish Cream
1 egg
1 egg yolk
100g white chocolate (chopped)
100g milk chocolate (chopped)

1. Preheat oven to 160°C and grease and line three large baking trays.
2. Sift the salt, soda and flour together in a bowl.
3. In a seperate bowl cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended 
    (Use a handheld mixer if you have one or a freestanding mixer if doubling the recipe).
4. Beat in the vanilla, egg, egg yolk and Baileys until light and creamy.
5. Mix in the flour until blended.
6. Stir in the chopped chocolate pieces using a wooden spoon. Place spoonfuls of dough onto 
    the trays (ping pong ball sized). Leave plenty of space between each as they will spread out 
    a lot.
7. Bake for 15-17 minutes until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on the tray for a  
    few minutes before placing on wire racks to cool totally.

E-D's Notes
- I can place 5 cookies per tray as they really do spread out a lot so keep that in mind. I usually 
  line and grease 3 trays for this quantity of cookies. 
- The timing of these cookies is very important so make sure that you use a stopwatch.
