4. Lightly beat an egg in a separate bowl or cup

5. Pour the beaten egg into the sugar and butter mixture

6. Stir to combine

7. Measure out the baileys

8. Add the baileys into the mixture

9. Stir to combine – don’t worry if it’s not smooth at this point, just lightly mix

10. Add flour to the mixture

11. Stir to combine until smooth

12. Add the chocolate chips

13. Stir until evenly distributed

14. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, or buttered tin foil – and place large tablespoon scoops – evenly spread apart (don’t flatten into cookie shapes – leave them as rough balls)

15. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until they’re flatter and slightly cracking on top – they will be very soft – but will firm up a little when cooled – your oven may cook at a slightly different rate, so they may need a couple of minutes more – or less. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
