You don't have to be Irish to love them but it's a great time of the year to celebrate either way and make them for St. Patrick's Day !
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and egg together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and Irish Cream; mix until combined.
Gradually add dry ingredients to butter mixture and blend well. Fold in chocolate chips.
