It's St. Patrick's Day and I don't let a holiday go by without making some sugar cookies. In Boston, St. Patrick's Day is no minor celebration. In addition to being able to find corned beef and cabbage at almost every restaurant there is a huge parade in South Boston and major political roast. If you are in the Boston area you need to experience the St. Patrick's Day parade at least once. It's a rite of passage.
I decided to go simple for these cookies and do different patterns in the same shape. I bought the green food coloring a while ago, to make sure I didn't have a repeat of looking for red coloring at every store in the Boston area, like on the 4th of July. Mr. Apron appreciates this since he's usually the one I send out to the store.
Happy St. Patrick's Day. I hope you are drinking a pint of Guinness or a glass of Bailey's on the rocks while your reading this.
