St. Patrick's Day Cookies I Mommy Hates Cooking

Ever since I made these Old Fashioned Christmas Cookies during the holidays, I have been remaking this cookie recipe for various occasions.  This recipe reminds me of those soft sugar cookies you can purchase at the store, only I can make them gluten free.  Oh and they are homemade, which just makes them better…right?  Regardless, I love them!

For Valentine’s Day, my son and I made a batch then we decorated them with pink and red and delivered them to our family members.  Now, I decided to revisit these for St. Patrick’s Day!

They are so simple to make, simply whip up the cookies then you can top them with festive frosting.  I decided to use a whipped green and vanilla frosting with green sprinkles.  I love that this recipe also makes several dozen, now I can freeze a few dozen for later.  I just never know when I’m going to get a cookie craving!  Or maybe it’s when do I not crave cookies?

Are you in need of a few cookies today?  Or headed to a St. Patrick’s Day party?  These will be a hit!

St. Patrick’s Day Old Fashioned Cookies

Yield: 4 dozen

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Butter, Softened
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar, Packed
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup plus 2 Tbsp Milk
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla
  • 4 Cups All Purpose Flour or Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • Topping:
  • Sprinkles/Sixlets/Candies
  • Green & Vanilla Whipped Frosting

Directions:

Begin by creaming the butter, adding in the sugars, eggs, milk, and vanilla.

Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing well.

Chill the cookie dough in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

Preheat the Oven to 350*.

Drop tablespoon size rolled balls of dough on a greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-12 minutes then remove from oven and let cook before moving to a wire rack to complete cooling.

Once cookies are completely cooled. Put the frosting in a cake decorating bag with the 1M Wilton tip. Top the cookies with the whipped frosting then add the candies and sprinkles.

Keep them in the fridge until ready to serve to avoid the whipped cream from melting.

Makes about 4 dozen.
