SHAMROCK COOKIES/ Emerald Isle



Besides March Madness, the other big thing this month is St. Patrick's Day. It's the perfect excuse to wear green and party with friends on a day when everyone is Irish. For this post, I thought it would be fun to view some of the beautiful scenery from the Emerald Isle. The tour begins.

  1. Cute cookies. I really like the festive Irish colors in this cookie. I want to try decorating cookies with stencils. Since I do not get lots of time for baking, I will probably use the Wilton Spray Mists instead of investing in a airbrush machine. Beth
