Cookie Recipe of the Week: Easy Irish Shamrock Cookies: Fun Cookie Recipe for Kids (of All Ages)

Easy Irish Shamrock Cookies are a fun cookie recipe and a good one to make with kids.

You can make them with any sugar cookie recipe. If you have a favorite, by all means use it.

In this version, I use a sugar cookie mix but dress it up. The reason is simple. The fun in making these cookies is assembling the clover leaves into shamrocks!

You’ll take teaspoonfuls of sugar cookie dough, drop them onto a cutting board, and cut them into quarters. Three of the wedges become clover leafs. You’ll roll the fourth into the stem and then sprinkle the whole cookie with green colored sugar.

Prep time: 20-30 minutes
Bake time: 6-8 minutes
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
