Shamrock Sprinkle Cookies
St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday for food. I’m not really a fan of making things like green eggs, or using green ketchup (remember that from the 90’s?!), and my kids aren’t really fans either. HOWEVER, green cookies aren’t a deal breaker! Especially since these Shamrock Sprinkle Cookies are covered in sprinkles, my kids are all about that!
This recipe was actually born out of a way to use up the extra shamrock cookie cut outs I had left over from these Stained Glass Shamrock Cookies and they turned out so cute! See the recipe for the Stained Glass Shamrock Cookies if you want an easy shortcut to make two kinds of cookies from one dough!
This sugar cookie dough is awesome because it’s easy to make, holds its shape perfectly and needs NO chilling at all! It only cooks for about 8-9 minutes and they’re soft and delicious. To get the sugar cookies to stay put where they’re supposed to be, make sure to gently press on the sprinkles on top of the cookies before putting them in the oven. This will make sure they stay put while baking!
