Irish Cream Sugar Cookies

"These are deliciously soft moist sugar cookies with the creamy richness of Bailey's Irish Cream! Wonderful as a St. Patrick's day treat or for any day you're craving a sugar cookie. I brought these to a party and within minutes, they disappeared. Feel free to omit the Bailey's and just cut down the flour by about half a cup."
