Shamrock Cookies 

Celebrate St. Patricks Day with Shamrock Cookies!

Use your heart-shaped cookie cutter to make Shamrock Cookies for St. Patrick’s Day!

Shamrock Cookie Recipe
(For 2 Dozen Large Cookies)
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups flour
Shamrock Icing
3 cups of powdered sugar
1/4 cup soft butter or margarine
5 or 6 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
10 drops green food coloring

Cream shortening and sugar together. Beat in eggs. Stir in milk, vanilla and salt. Mix in flour. Work the dough with your hands for a minute .

Roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thick. Use flour as needed to roll out the cookies.

For each shamrock, you will need 4 heart-shaped cookies. Place one heart on an ungreased cookie sheet, then put one heart on each side at a 90-degree angle so the tips at the bottom are overlapping. Gently press the cookies together where they overlap. Take a lump of dough the size of a small walnut. Roll into a rope. Press 1\2 inch of the rope onto the bottom of the shamrock. Shape the remaining rope into a stem and flatten gently, like photo. (Four or five shamrocks will fit on each cookie sheet.)

Bake in a 350° oven for 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Immediately remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and allow to cool.

When the cookies are cooled frost with shamrock icing. For added decoration, use cookie sprinkles, if desired.

Measure the powdered sugar into a mixing bowl. Work the butter/margarine into the dry powdered sugar with a mixing spoon. Add salt and vanilla. Add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time and mix thoroughly after each addition. When the icing is fi nished, add the food coloring and mix thoroughly. The cookies are now ready to be iced. Be as creative as you like!
