Made for ZWT-8 to satisfy my "Cookie Monster" persona (a rep well-earned). So I have a question - Have you ever tried to make a "square log"? I frankly couldn't figure out how to do it w/o using a mold of some kind. I tried & it was very ugly, so you'll have to settle for the rectangles I finally managed to get using the sides of a refrigerator storage container as a mold. Other than that little detail, these to-die-for cookies were easy-to-fix & they're pretty too (even if I do say so myself). The amt of "Irish cream" (or coffee) is very sml, but if entirely kid-friendly is a goal - It might be fun to add green food colouring to the butter/powd sugar filling mixture. Thx for sharing this truly yummy recipe w/us. Gotta go now. I'm a "woman w/a mission" because it was definitely not a part of my plan for DH hide the cookies!
