Cookies in the shapes of cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day are now yours. All you need is a cupcake-shaped cookie cutter, baked & cooled cookies, and some tinted royal icing. If you happen to have green nonpareils or some shamrock candies to attach to the cookies, even better. As you probably already know, I like to keep cookie designs simple because it makes my job of creating dozens upon dozens much easier.

If you haven't figured it out, the cupcake cookie cutter can also be used to make these leprechaun cookies. Simply flip the cookie upside down and decorate the adorable face of this leprechaun as shown. I made them last year, but failed to add noses to them. This year small beads of ivory-colored icing were piped onto the faces with great success.
Even if you don't have any time to make St. Patrick's Day cookies this year, bookmark this page for future use. Make sure that each cookie is colorful, tasty and packaged in a clear cellophane bag for gift giving. Whether you choose to tie the bag with a green ribbon, a rainbow ribbon or one with shamrocks on it, the little treats are going to be devoured by kids and adults.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
