St. Patrick’s Day Cookies
(Also know as Jell-O Cookies)
For several years we lived in a fun little town in Eastern Oregon. Until we lived there St Patrick’s Day wasn’t a holiday that we really celebrated. However this little town made St Patrick’s day so much fun! The festivities started on the Thursday closest to March 17th and went clear through Sunday. There were several food vendors, motocross races, sheep dog trials (which by the way is amazing to see!) a parade right down main street, an Irish Boxing Smoker, and many more fun activities! One of the local vendors always made these Jell-O Cookies and thanks to my friends excellent detective skills she was able to track down the recipe. They make the perfect St. Patrick’s Day Cookies.
One year my friend Amy and I decided to volunteer to be Leprechauns during the parade. We walked up and down the street greeting the kids and taking pictures with them. We had so much fun! My little man E has a birthday on March 18th so he always felt like it was such a big celebration in his honor. Who could blame him right?
Some of the things we have taken with us as we moved away from our beloved little town are the reminder that we don’t really need a reason to celebrate, any occasion will do! Just have fun and find the joy in everyday life. We discovered that we really love traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage. (Recipe to come) As well as dressing up just for fun!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a chance to make these yummy cookies. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think and what your favorite flavor is!
- Preheat oven to 350. Cream together butter and Jell-O Add vanilla, egg, and milk and mix until fluffy. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix, but don't overmix. I like to put the dough in the refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes to make it easier to handle. As you scoop the cookies, roll each ball in granulated sugar before you put it on the pan, and flatten them a little bit with the bottom of a glass cup. (I use my small Pampered Chef scoop to make the perfect size cookie.) Bake for 8-10 minutes.
