St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Recipe
These Shamrock Sugar Cookies are so simple to make! All you need to do it whip up some sugar cookies and top them with green sprinkles! No special baking skills necessary.
I used a no-roll sugar cookie recipe for these sugar cookies…If you want an excellent roll & cut sugar cookie recipe, check this one out!
Shamrock Sugar Cookie Ingredients:
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1½ cups granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Green Sprinkles
- Optional: Green Food Coloring
Shamrock Sugar Cookie Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or grease it well. Don’t skip this or the cookies will stick to your pan.
Next, cream the butter & sugar together until smooth with a hand mixer and then add in the egg.
Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla into the butter, sugar, egg mixture.
Now you can add a couple drops of green food coloring if you like. This step is optional, but you can’t go wrong with a green St Patrick’s Day Cookie!
Roll the cookie dough into balls, then coat them with granulated sugar and green sprinkles.
Place the sugared and sprinkled dough balls onto the lined or greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Let the Shamrock Sugar Cookies cool and then enjoy your sweet St Patrick’s Day Cookies!
