Shamrock Cookies

So easy it's ridiculous...and that's just how a girl like me likes a recipe!
Easy maybe but they are also tasty and festive and
a sweet idea for a St. Patrick's Day treat.
Ingredients 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated sugar cookies 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 cup green sugar Directions 1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up the cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Work with half the dough at a time; refrigerate remaining dough until needed. 2. Shape dough into 70 (3/4-inch) balls; reserve 7 balls. Roll each of the remaining balls in green sugar. To form each shamrock, place 2 balls with sides touching and 1 ball on top on ungreased cookie sheets. For stems, divide each reserved ball into 3 pieces. Roll each piece into ball, then in green sugar; shape into a triangle. Place 1 triangle pointed side up at bottom of each cookie between 2 balls for stem. 3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
And as Grace would like to point out, dunking these babies in
a tall glass of ice cold milk will turn that stuff green! And you can never have enough green on March 17th right?
Love and Hugs,

Perfect timing! Something easy and fun to do with the grand kids! They will love it. Thanks for sharing. Wasn't looking forward to mixing up a batch of sugar cookies.
Oh and me too, I'll be right over to dunk away in an ice cold glass of green milk as well. ;o)

Love what you've done with your blog page. You always have the neatest set up. What talent!

Kids love green milk, don't they? When my kids were little, we always had a little green food color in the milk on St. Pat's Day. Enjoy the day!! Sally

If I recall correctly, you created some wonderfully delicious looking things last St. Patrick day as well :o) (While I um, created lemon bars with green glace....good thing they tasted a whole lot better then they looked!)

Happy St. Patrick's Day Sue!!!!

Hi Susie Q,
These look super easy. They'd be a perfect little treat after my corned beef and cabbage dinner!

The mention of green milk made me think back to college when one of my friends "tinted" her milk green so her room mates would think twice before using it!
