Yield: 2 dozen cookies
Time (Start to Finish): 1 hour

2 cups flour
pinch salt
2 sticks butter, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
green food dye

green sprinkles

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. In a mixer, combine the powdered sugar and the butter on low until together
3. Add the flour and mix. When almost together, add the vanilla and food dye and mix
4. Roll dough out to ¼ inch thick, or a tad thicker, and cut out shamrock shapes.
5. Sprinkle with sprinkles and bake for about 8 min until browning on the edges

Rating: 4 strawberries
Notes: So I made 200 of these for my dad’s handball club’s St. Patricks day luncheon! I stayed up late in to the night making them, chatting with the roomies, and busting them out. They are quick as long as you keep moving, yummy, and very festive. There is nothing like making green cookies. You can make any shape, add different flavorings, or like me, accidently put sour apple sprinkles on some of them! I hope you like them, and happy st. patties!
