Luck o' the Irish

I love this time of year! It just means spring is just around the corner! It also gives me a chance to do a little baking in the kitchen...

This year I decided to make some clover sugar cookies. Yum! I was completely inpired by Martha Stewart (who is also my inspiration for this week's Copycat Friday) to bake these delicious cookies. The recipe is time consuming since you make the sugar cookies from scratch (of course! Would Martha do otherwise??), and you also have to put the adorable little clovers on the cookies. Aren't they cute?

To put the clovers on the unbaked sugar cookies, you simply sift together 1/3 cup powdered sugar with 1 teaspoon green food coloring. Then print and cut out this template and center it on the unbaked sugar cookies. Using a small sieve, gently shake the green sugar mixture on the template, peel off the template, and voila! A beautiful clover cookie! Let the cookies chill in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes, then bake at 325 F for 14 minutes (depending on your oven). Easy peasy!

I placed the cookies in my cookie container that I decorated with green tissue paper (from Christmas...I recycle!) and these fun printables from TomKat Studio. Festive, huh?

Happy St. Patty's Day!!!
