Boozy Salty M&M Cookies

Every time I think I will have time to share two blog posts a week, my days get crazier!  Do you remember that I am a food safety specialist for my day job?  So I get to always think-breathe-see, AND enjoy food in someway.  BUT creating my own treats…welllllll….that is a bit challenging these days.  As my work aims to achieve many goals, I will work hard to ensure you have new content here on my blog.  I will also share some older posts, it is fun to share old posts that stay slightly hidden in my recipe index.

This recipe was created last weekend, and devoured during every lunch break last week!  This made me giggle all week.  Every time I opened the container to grab a cookie, my senses were invaded with a delicious boozy aroma!  With the intense boozy love, I decided this cookie would be an awesome dessert at any holiday party!

Boozy Salty M&M Cookies

This recipe was adapted from the classic M&M cookie recipe found on the back of the M&M bag.  With the increase in liquid from the delicious Bailey’s, there was changes in the dry ingredients.  Hubby and I loved the adapted recipe, and are already thinking of adding another type of booze to the recipe!

    What a rich and delicious looking cookie Terra. I'm with you, I like sharing some of my older posts. I have a lot more followers now and I'm sure they have missed a few along the way. My favorite M&M - peanut with dark chocolate!

    I don't think we have recipes on our M&M packets here. I'll have to check. It is difficult when you work to keep up with blogging - very hard to run two full-time jobs all at once! I love the look of these and Baileys is my most favourite liquor so I'm sure I would enjoy these xx
