Baileys & Choc Chip Cookies

oh so lovely, proper luxury cookies. Makes 20.

125g butter softened
100g soft brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda
225g plain flour
1/2 cup of chopped hazelnuts( approx 65g)
1/2 cup of dark chocolate (approx 12 squares,chopped up small)
4 tablespoons baileys Irish Cream

Cream the butter and sugar, beat in the egg.

Add the flour,salt and bicarb,and mix really well.

Add the nuts.

Chop up around 12 squares of dark chocolate,add to the mix. Finally pour in the Baileys.

Mix well and drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. These cookies do not spread a lot, 6 on a sheet will be just fine.

Bake at gas mark 4, for around 10-12 mins, till golden and just set.
Allow to cool on a wire rack.

serve with a cuppa,goes especially well with creamy coffee.
