Croissant a’la Baileys

 

Quick, it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day.  Gather up some crescent rolls, cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar.

Oh, and let me introduce you to my little friend … Baileys Original Irish Cream.

Have I captured your interest?  I thought so.

This is a quick recipe guaranteed to elicit squeals of delight from anyone over the age of 21.  (I think you will agree.  Hearing adults squeal in delight is worth waiting for).

The recipe using Bailey’s Original Irish Cream is only to be consumed by people over the age of 21.   Once again, my recipe…my rules……

unless…

Good news.  You can use Bailey’s Coffee Creamer and get similar results!!!

While this looks like a paid advertisement for Kraft (Philadelphia Cream Cheese), General Mills (Pillsbury Crescent Rolls), Diageo (Baileys) and the Domino Sugar Company (guess which product belongs to the Domino Sugar Company), none of these companies know or care that I am making luscious breakfast rolls with their products.  It’s just that sometimes you really have to use name brands.   This is one of those times.  Really.  Trust me on this.

The glass full of ice….. in case you want a little libation while you are cooking.
