Chocolate Wintergreen Shamrock Cookies for St. Patrick's Day


She's baaaack....with more crazy toothpaste flavored baked goods. This time instead of spearmint, I'm went with wintergreen, another one of my favorite flavors. Wintergreen lifesavers are my favorite. Ok maybe a little over the top for a buttercream flavor.




The verdict? Only one person who tasted them scraped off the buttercream before finishing the cookies. Everyone else loved them. Pinky swear.


For the chocolate cookies I used one of my favorite recipes from Meaghan over at the Decorated Cookie. The recipe is one she used for her witch leg cookies which I made a few Halloweens ago.




The filling was based on Deb's oreo filling over at Smitten Kitchen. I just added a few drops of LorAnn's wintergreen candy oil and green food coloring.




Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  4. whoever scraped off butter cream should be kicked out of your life, there is something wrong with them... that would be like pulling the cheese off your pizza...lol
