Seasonal Tradition: St. Patrick’s Day Cookies

147

Tremendous thanks to Walmart.com for sponsoring this post.

You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day! Claire and I decided to make some St. Patrick’s Day Cookies. I’m using a recipe my mom shared with me years ago. These cookies have a hint of almond flavor, making them so good!

I ordered all my groceries using my Walmart+ membership and had them delivered right to my door. It’s so convenient, and with my membership, I get free grocery delivery (with a $35 minimum, restrictions apply).

My mom was a food editor for our local newspaper, and I have all her recipes from the newspapers in a notebook. I love to get them out and make some of her favorites.

Here is her recipe:

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg yolk (reserve white)
2 cups all-purpose flour

Blend sugar, butter, cream cheese, salt, almond extract, vanilla, and egg yolk with a mixer. Mix in flour until well blended. Refrigerate the dough for two hours.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough one-third at a time on a lightly floured surface. Cut out cookies as close together as possible using a cookie cutter dipped in flour.

Place the cookies one inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Move cookies to and from baking sheets with a wide spatula to prevent breaking. Leave cookies plain or, if desired, brush with slightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with green-colored sugar. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies are a light golden brown. Cool completely. After cooling, you can use the almond glaze below.

Almond Glaze

1 cup confectioner’s sugar=
1/4 tsp. almond extract
2 T. water
4 drops of green food coloring.

Stir all ingredients until smooth. Pur 1 teaspoon glaze on each sugar cookie. Use the back of a teaspoon to spread the glaze evenly over the cookie. Let glaze dry, and enjoy!

Claire loves to bake, and she’s the best little helper! The cookie dough had to chill for two hours before making the cookies, so I made the dough before Claire came over.

We brushed egg whites over the cookie dough before adding green sprinkles.

We decided to ice some of the cookies with the almond glaze.

We had so much fun baking our cookies; we can’t wait to bake some Easter cookies!

Beauty for the Heart™But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. Psalm 103:17-18

Truth: I’m thankful I have my mom’s recipes, but more importantly than recipes, I’m thankful that mom loved Jesus and shared Him with everyone around her. She especially wanted her children and her grandchildren to know Jesus. Now I have the privilege of sharing Him with Colt, Claire, and Caroline. There is no greater joy!

Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!
