‘Kiss Me, I’m Irish’ Cookies
Makes aproximately 30 cookies
½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup Irish cream liqueur (like Bailey’s) or make your own easy blender Irish Cream here.
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
Hershey’s® Kisses® milk chocolates, unwrapped
Colored sugar if desired
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In medium bowl, beat butter and sugars with electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beating until incorporated, then add Irish Cream, beating until well combined.
In another medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture, a little at a time, beating on low speed until combined.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll into colored sugar if desired. Place on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or until lightly golden. Immediately press kiss into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Cool on cookie sheet a few minutes then move to wire rack to cool completely.

My Spring Green Ball Heritage Jars are holding kisses for St. Patrick’s Day, top the lid with a cupcake wrapper for easy gift giving!
I found ‘Kiss Me I’m Irish’ necklaces in the dollar spot at Target in packages of two :)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and your girls Mary!! What a beautiful post!! I must make some of these this weekend!!
These look wonderful and I bet they would be good with the Andes Creme de Menthe chocolates in the middle-just wouldn’t look as pretty since they are rectangular. Love the cupcake liners. Great job as always!
Congrats to the winners.
Great recipe for St. Patrick treat. Liners are cute and kisses look great in the green Ball jars. Great styling as usual.
That was such a nice giveaway.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!🍀
Forgot, to say how clever to use the muffin liner as a decorative topper. You have started a new trend. I love the idea. At first, I thought you had hand painted the lid. Of course, I would not be surprised it you had. This idea could be used at Christmas with the green jars too.
Congratulations to the winners. I’d love one (can anyone eat just one?) of those yummy looking Irish kisses! :D
Everything looks so pretty and fresh and the cookies . . . well, I’m just going to have to make some this afternoon! BTW, I’d love to know where you found the green Ball jars. I’ve looked and looked and all I’ve found are blue Ball jars in pint size – at Kroger. They are a gorgeous shade of blue but I want the green. Can you help me please?
Hi Vicky, I’m sure the green jars will be flooding the stores soon! I found some at Target and Michaels last year. You can buy them from Ball online in pint and quart size here.
I too thought you painted the lid! But how clever to use a liner, you sooo smart :) The cookies (peanutbutter blossoms) are my hubbys favorite so to roll them in green sugar, wow perfect for St Pattys Day!
I am just thrilled winning the green jars :) :) and look forward to putting them to use!
Thank you Mary !!
What great ideas. The cookies look delicious!
I love how you used the pretty cupcake liners. Congrats to the lucky winners.
How clever to put the cookies in your signature inside outside cupcake papers! Really makes the cookie a star! I bet they taste stellar too! I must get some green jars to play with, congrats to the winners! Love the name of your cookies :)
I MUST make those cookies for our son’s (Aaron Patrick) birthday on March 17th!! franki
What a fun little project this will be to do with the granddaughters who are soon arriving. They are quite the bakers.
salivating before the sun even comes up… MY KINDA BREAKFAST! oh these must be fabulous…
Love those green jars-would fill them with Irish potato candies and flowers–hope I can still win!
Beautiful cookies Mary!…Can’t wait to celebrate my little sweetie’s St. Patrick’s Birthday…Sugar cookies with green sugar may just be on the agenda this weekend!! Congrats to the winners and have a wonderful weekend!!!
Mary – Thanks so much for your help! I think I’ll order some jars and stop driving all over town in search of them!
Your cookies look great and everyone likes an extra kiss or two:@)
these cookies look so good and very festive!! congrats to your winners!
Why, oh why, do I have to be on a diet right now? I bet the Bailey’s makes these cookies so good! I, too, thought you’d painted the lids on the jars. Congrats to the winners and have a great time celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!
Oh Mary, the cookies sound wonderful and perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day treat. You always style everything so perfectly. Yea for the winners! xo
The cookies sound yummy, Mary – hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!!
