There are shamrock cookies; you know the ones I mean, the professional looking, beautifully decorated sugar cookie cutouts gracing holiday celebrations . . .
. . . and then there are Shamrock Cookies, sweet melt-in-your mouth molded creations with Grandma’s homemade touch!
To create these Irish inspired delights, I took cues from Gluten Free Sugar Cookies—Key Recipe to Incredible Cutout Cookies, a world class recipe that passed the “cookie” test with friends, family and co-workers who thought they were eating the real thing.
By increasing the gluten-free flour content of the dough, these otherwise flat cutouts were launched into a new dimension . . . 3-D!
Fashioning small round dough balls and chilling them before baking, produces charming puff-leafed Shamrocks.
Add a magical sparkle with a sprinkling of green colored sugar.
Not just for St. Patrick’s Day, make these cute Cookies any time of year when you need a touch of Irish cheer.
Time: 3 hours
Servings: 36 cookies
Cookie dough can be frozen. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before baking.
Love fun cookies for St Patrick's Day. These cookies are perfect for any Irish celebration or for your Irish friends and family! https://t.co/ciFpTACobD— Frances (@Painlesscooking) August 2, 2017
