Chocolate Irish Cream Cookies

Need I say more?
No pictures, but boy, do they taste fabulous.

2 cups self-rising flour
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
50 grams bittersweet chocolate (the darker and more cocoa solids, the better)
1/4 cup oil
100 grams butter/margarine
5 tablespoons Irish cream
2 tablespoons of milk or substitute

Preheat oven to 150C degrees.
Melt the butter, chocolate, and milk together until smooth. In the meantime, mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl, and then add the chocolate mixture in slowly. Using a teaspoon, scoop batter onto a cookie sheet, setting each scoop at least 3 cm apart (the cookies double in size in the oven). Bake in the oven 20-30 minutes. The cookies will be slightly soft when ready.

They go really well with Irish coffee – that’s coffee with a tablespoon of Irish cream. Irish music optional.
