Test Kitchen Tuesday ~ Week 6

St. Patrick's Day is coming and although I am not Irish, you can't help but celebrate in Syracuse, New York.
There is more hype for St. Patricks Day here than there is for New Years Eve.
We even have a traffic light on Tipperary Hill with the Green light on the top.

It's pretty serious.

Something else that's pretty serious here...

                                                                                                                       an empty cookie jar.

Today, I will be testing out a recipe for Bailey's White Chocolate Chip Cookies that I found on The Nerds Wife blog.
Those sound Irish enough to me !

One of my pet peeves is when people write a review for a recipe they tried and they start off with, I didn't have xxxx so I used yyyy, and instead of xxxxx I used yyyy and instead of doing xxxxx I did yyyyy , you get the jist.
Then they go on to give the recipe a review. Really?!? You didn't actually make THE recipe, you made your own recipe so giving the one that is written a good or bad review really isn't right. ~ At least in my opinion.

Just had to vent that, it came to mind as I discovered all I had was Mint Bailey's on hand and I ended up making this recipe with Carolan's Irish Cream instead.
So I will be changing the name of my cookie to Carolan's White Chocolate Chip Cookies to be fair.
 Everything else was done exactly as written in the original recipe.

Survey says:

We like them.
Next time I will chill the dough before baking.
I may have let the butter get a bit too soft and it caused our cookies to be thin and not thick  like we like them.
But the flavor is great and even though mine came out thin, they are still soft and chewy.
These won't be in regular rotation, but they will find their way back to our cookie jar next St. Patrick's Day.
