  4. Snickerdoodles are my girls favorites, but I'm not ready to give them beer versions. Maybe when they're a little bit older!

  7. I usually love my Irish coffee or anything with Bailey's or Irish whiskey but that's on hold until June for me. These cookies sound delightful, I know I have quite a few friends that would love them!
