These Butter Cookies Are Made With Baileys And European Chocolate
It's the cookie combination we've been waiting for.
These days, the general state of the world is pretty much the only excuse you need in order to justify treating yourself to something indulgent. Heck, at this point, you've probably gotten sick of all of your favorite types of cookies and booze since March, because you haven't had all that much else to do.
That's why you should probably consider adding some liqueur-flavored cookies to your life, which, thankfully, is very possible thanks to a recent collaboration between German cookie maker Bahlsen and Irish cream liqueur brand Baileys.
The partnership between these two staples of fancy desserts has yielded not one, but two elegant cream-filled cookies. First up is the Choco Leibniz Baileys, which puts a Baileys Original Irish Cream-flavored filling inside of a crunchy butter biscuit which is coated in milk chocolate. If you're more into wafers than butter cookies, there's also the First Class Baileys, which takes that Baileys cream filling, nestled inside of crispy wafers that are drizzled in a Baileys-flavored milk chocolate. Both of them feature the same level of sophistication, expert crafting, and quality ingredients that the German cookie maker is known for.
Before you get too excited, it's worth noting that these cookies feature essentially no alcohol. The First Class Baileys has no alcohol, and the Choco Leibniz Baileys ''contains <1% alcohol.'' So even if you do choose the Choco Leibniz, you're probably going to be full long before you catch any kind of buzz.
You'll find the fruits of this chocolatey, creamy collaboration on store shelves now as well as on Amazon, but they'll only be around for a limited time. Whether or not either cookie pairs well with apple pie-flavored Baileys is open to debate.
