Shamrock Cookies in a hurry

It is were up to me I would be bake beautifully themed treats for every holiday to pass out to neighbors, bring to work for my teacher coworkers, send to out of state family, and share with my daughter’s classroom. Baking takes time and unfortunately I just don’t have enough to spend spreading sugar during holidays. Although I’m a busy working mommy, I am making sure we have cookies for St. Patrick’s Day. My shamrock cookies in a hurry took less than half an hour to make and are the perfect treat for St. Patrick’s Day!

Of course I would prefer to make my own frosting but when I’m in a pinch for time, I use the colored Betty Crocker cake icing with attachments. The colors are bright and the icing tastes great. Using the attachments is incredibly easy and makes it possible for any amateur to frost perfect cookies. The frosting is great for cupcakes too, like my Game Day cupcakes with Butterfinger Cups football toppers.
