St. Patty's Day 2012
Even though we aren't Irish, we thought we would have some extra fun on St. Patty's Day this year. We didn't go to the parade in St. Paul ... or drink any green beer ... but we did make some awesome cookies and have a great time with the Bushaw's.
If you notice, I did learn my lesson with the V-Day cookies. These ones did not involve any rolling or cookie cutters. The recipe was the same, but flat circles suited me just fine! It was more fun to spend the extra time in the kitchen decorating.
In case you couldn't tell, the lead topping was miniature chocolate chips. Between the cookies and the frosting, I lost count of how many sticks of butter we went through. Why not go for broke with the diet plans and top them with chocolate!
