Irish Kiss Cookies

This morning, Jordan informed me that he doesnt 'theme dress'...  He nearly wore a green shirt to work today but then realized it was St Pats and changed into a purple one.


I find it slightly ironic that a guy who loves Guinness and found his future wife (me) by searching the internet dating world for redheads would decline to openly participate in the holiday that celebrates both beer and those who gave us redheads, but i digress...

I'm making up for his non-participatory nature by wearing a green shirt, green eyeliner and giving you boozy green cookies.


Happy St Patrick's Day!!!

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt

½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup light brown sugar

1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ c + 1 tbsp Bailey's Irish cream
green food coloring gel

32 Dark Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped

Powdered Sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Combine flour, baking soda & salt and set aside.

Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. 

Add the egg and vanilla, beating until combined. 

Add the Irish Cream, beating well.

Add half of the flour mixture & mix to combine.  Add the remaining flour mixture & mix to combine.

Continue to mix while you add green food coloring until you get your desired shade of green.

Push a kiss into ~ 1 tsp of dough and form a ball around the kiss.  Place on baking sheet, leaving 1.5 inches or more between each ball.

Bake ~9 minutes.  Cookies will flatten some and the color will change slightly.

Cool on the cookie sheets for a minute or two, then carefully slide parchment paper onto a wire rack to finish cooling.  

Dust with powdered sugar.
