Cookies Desserts St. Patrick's Day

Shamrock Sugar Cookies

March 10, 2011

I am madly in love with decorated sugar cookies. After the success of my Boots & Guitars, I couldn’t wait to dive back in. I jumped at the chance to make more when Shannon over at Family Bites requested a tutorial and we both wanted to try marbling the icing. Since St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, it was easy to pick these Shamrock Sugar Cookies.

So, how’s it taste?

You just can beat this Vanilla Almond Sugar Cookie recipe. It has made this sugar-cookie-hating girl change her tune. For the shamrock cookies, I rolled the dough out slightly thicker and they were even more delicious. I much prefer a chewy, moist cookie to a crunchy, crispy one. So bake some cookies and break out your icing colors and have some fun decorating!
