Cookies are a classic treat for any occasion, especially with so many mix-in and decoration options out there. I love to make themed sugar cookies for any occasion from baby showers to holidays because I can always find something to fit the theme. That’s the case with these sugar cookies. I’ve used this same sugar cookie recipe with various mix-ins for all sorts of occasions. In this case, I use green sprinkles to give them a fun, festive, and delicious St Patrick’s Day theme. They’re great because they’re easy to make, they’re delicious, and you can double or even triple the recipe to serve large crowds. They’re also delicious. Did I mention that? Well, it bears repeating!
St Patrick’s Day Sugar Cookies
These delicious cookies start with a simple, classic sugar cookie dough. It’s made in the usual way, but I add corn syrup to make the cookies extra soft and chewy for that oh, so wonderful texture that we all love in really good sugar cookies. From there, I add green sprinkles into the dough for an extra blast of sweetness and a classic green St. Patrick’s Day theme. Finally, they’re baked to soft, chewy perfection. If you think they sound amazing, then you’re spot on!
