Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away, this space was solely a baking blog with a bit of travel thrown in. I used to spend most of my blog time presenting colorful, sugary, sparkly creations.
And French macarons. A LOT of French Macarons. Remember Mararon Mondays?
As time went on (going into my 9th year here), I've added savory food and recipes. Consequently, it has been some time since I've dragged out the food coloring and the cutters to make something bright and fun. St. Patrick's Day was the perfect excuse, only I couldn't decide what design cookie to make. So I made all the designs.
Well maybe not all of them but here are four you can easily make yourself. Some are easier than others but none are impossibly intricate or difficult.
Three shades of shamrocks may not be as sexy as 50 Shades of Grey but the fun factor is high.
You will need your favorite rollout sugar cookie dough recipe or store-bought cookie dough, three different sizes of the same shamrock shaped cookie cutters and green food coloring. That's all.
