Shamrock Sugar Cookie Recipe

To add a special flare to a holiday it is fun to have special Sugar Cookies Recipe to highlight the day, especially if you have children.  I missed February with red hearts Sugar Cookies, so I tried for March with the green Shamrocks.

Since my children are out of state and my grand-girls do not live nearby, I am not as prone to make the rolled cookies.  We are kids at heart, so my husband and I enjoyed every Shamrock Sugar Cookie.  

Thanks to Betty Crocker for this Sugar Cookie recipe.
