This is a basic and simple sugar cookie recipe. All you need is a round pasty cutter to make the leaves of the shamrocks.
Makes 12 cookies
2 1/4 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk
Drops of green food colouring. Just enough to turn the mixture green!
Sift flour. Cream butter, sugar ,eggs. Add vanilla and milk to the flour. Blend all ingredients and then add the drops of green food colouring. Place dough on a lightly floured board or dry countertop.
Sprinkle some flour over the dough and roll to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut out 3 circles with the pastry cutter and overlap the circles into a shape of a shamrock and place on baking tray. Bake at 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
