I think everyone at work is on a diet because of me. I bring in treats for them to try new recipes or I just share goodies to celebrate a holiday or birthday. They hate the temptation, then love when they finally give in. These cookies were so freakin' easy and tasty! I brought them in for St. Patrick's Day. I'm glad I left some at home to share with the hubby and have for snacking all weekend. Try them out! Be prepared my fellow co-workers... someone's birthday is next Tuesday. I am whipping up a special treat to celebrate!
|Festive St. Patty's Cookies|
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
2 c white chocolate chips
green sugar crystals
green food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, add butter and powdered sugar. Cream together until mixed. Add vanilla. Gradually add flour. Mix well.
You can roll it out onto a lightly floured surface and cut in shapes or use cookie cutters. Or just simply shape a tablespoon of dough into logs or squares. Leave about 2 inches between each cookie. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for about 9-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes on pan and then move cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
You can drizzle or spoon melted chocolate over cookies. Then sprinkle with toppings of your choice. I spooned white chocolate and sprinkled green sugars or pistachios over mine. I also colored the white chocolate with green food coloring on some. Makes about 24 cookies.
