This summer I had the awesome opportunity to try out a few of the new BAILEYS coffee creamers, before they were even released to the grocery stores.

I know. Perfect gig for me, right? You guys want to know where my pumpkin obsession came from so early in the season this year? Well, I’ve been drinking coffee with Pumpkin Spice creamer since June! No joke.

This past June I had the luxury of indulging in some of Lori’s (Recipe Girl) treats that she made using BAILEYS creamer. And when I say indulge, I mean over indulge.

So when BAILEYS asked me to create some recipes using their newest creamer flavors, I was thrilled!

For today’s recipe, I used their Pumpkin Spice creamer to create a delicious shortbread cookie. You all know how much I love shortbread cookies!

The creamer adds a delicious depth of flavor, not only to the cookie, but also to the glaze on top! Add just a drizzle of glaze, or spread it on thick like I do!

BAILEYS Pumpkin Spice Shortbread

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 36 cookies

Shortbread Cookies made with BAILEYS Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer!

Ingredients

    For the Cookies:
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 Tbsp BAILEY’S Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp BAILEY’S Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
  • 2 tsp pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon/sugar blend, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and powdered sugar for 3 minutes, until fully combined. Add flour, salt, pumpkin puree, creamer, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Beat until mixture comes fully together.
  3. Drop dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Working with floured fingers, press dough into a large rectangle (about 14x12inch). Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes, until cookies are slightly firm to touch and just starting to brown. Remove from oven and immediately cut into triangles. Separate slightly and allow to cool completely before adding glaze.
  4. For the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, creamer and pumpkin puree. Pour smooth glaze into a Ziploc bag. Cut of the corner and drizzle glaze over cooled cookies. You could cover the tops of the cookies completely with glaze, or just do a small amount of drizzle on each cookie. Sprinkle cookies immediately with cinnamon sugar blend.
  5. Store cookies in air tight container at room temperature.

I love Baileys. And that coffee creamer. And the video. Fabulous job on this one, Aimee!

That creamer is not available in San Diego (yet). I’ve been stalking it and sadly, nothing yet. Soon I hope!

White Chocolate Peppermint … *swoon* But gosh these sound amazing, too! I am compelled to buy everything with the label pumpkin spice (like cider and coffee and salsa – its is a problem!) Shortbread is always a favorite and putting creamer in glaze is genius!

You can, but you will lose some of that pumpkin spice flavor!

I love pumpkin spice creamer! I have not yet tried the Bailey’s pumpkin spice. I didn’t even know they made pumpkin spice creamer until this past weekend! I bet these little shortbread cookies are amazing! I’d probably have a hard time eating just one or two. Pinned!

I love shortbread! I am not quite sure about the pumpkin spice (I know, I must be one of the few people in the world who don’t go nuts over pumpkin spice), but the rest sounds wonderful!
