Planning a Boozy Cookie Exchange plus Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


As I started to plan my son’s annual cookie party I was chatting with some co-workers who wanted to be invited. From there it was decided that we would have a cookie exchange.

There are so many wonderful ideas I spent a good hour looking and pinning.

Boozy cookie exchange

Anyone can make several dozen cookies to exchange with friends but what if there was a challenge à la Iron Chef to have an ingredient in common, booze! A merry boozy cookie exchange!

Tips for hosting a boozy cookie exchange:

  1. Specify on invites that all cookies should have one alcoholic ingredient and should be clearly labeled. 
  2. Ask guests to bring their ingredient to compare tastes or provide it. 
  3. Don't forget to have to-go carriers on hand for those who forgot
  4. Prize for the best cookie? Perhaps a nice bottle of wine?
  5. Serve drinks that will compliment not overwhelm like wine, hot chocolate, or Irish coffee.

And, if you get stuck for a really awesome cookie recipe - try this one! 


Baileys Chocolate Chip Cookies

• 3/4 cup Crisco® Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening
• 1 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
• 3 tablespoons Bailey’s Irish Cream
• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
• 1 large egg
• 1 3/4 cups Flour
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 (6 oz.) package milk chocolate chips


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375. In a mixing bowl combine the first four ingredients, blend until creamy. 
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the remainder of the ingredients then combine it with the shortening mixture. 
  3. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, drop scoopfuls of batter on a cookie sheet
  5. Bake for ten minutes. 
  6. Remove from the oven and let stand for one minute. 
Personally, I under cookie my cookies and let them finish 'baking' on the baking sheet I find that they are softer and chewier then when I bake as directed.

Enjoy!
