My kids have fun helping me make these cute cookies. Although these festive morsels are really meant for St. Patrick's Day, my family requests them year-round.

Reviewed Apr. 3, 2010

These cookies were as much fun to make as they were to eat. It was a different twist than shortbread cutouts, but still had shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day.
