The original recipe, on A Beautiful Bite, said these cookies “will have your Irish (or non-Irish) eyes smiling”. That sounds about right to us.
The three flavors - chocolate, Guinness, and Bailey’s Irish cream - go perfectly together.

Total time:33 mins
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temp
1 cup white sugar

Mix the cream, butter, sugar, eggs and Guinness in a mixer, on medium, until light and fluffy.
