Pecan Cookie Cocktail Sundae Recipe

There are some combinations I would never think to try, but sugar cookies and Bailey’s? Sign me up! I recently shared a RumChata cocktail sundae which combined one of my favorite liquors with cupcakes and whipped cream. This combination takes Bailey’s (which is totally delicious in a Bailey’s Hot Cocoa!) and pairs it with pecan sugar cookies and ice cream.

  9. Cook in a 375 degree over for 10 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack until cookies are safe to handle.
  11. Put a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream into a bowl or martini glass if you want to get a lil' fancy.

You can make this a non-alcoholic treat if you omit the Bailey's.
