These cat cookies are way cuter than shamrock cookies!
What I love about these cookies is that you don’t have to have any fancy schmancy shaped shamrock cookie cutters or any decorating skills. Just a plain old round cookie cutter (or use a drinking glass turned upside down to cut out the circle shapes – a little tip from my sweet mom), some green candy, Fruit Roll-Ups and cereal.
Oh! And green food coloring. OF COURSE.
Just follow the info on the Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie package to prep your dough.
Don’t forget to add your food coloring. Just keep adding the color until you get the perfect shade of shamrock!
Roll out the dough and cut into circle shapes and bake. Cool completely before moving on.
Color slits in the middle of the green candy-coated chocolate pieces with a black edible marker.
Using the frosting, add the eyes and a shamrock sprinkle for the nose.
Pick out a cute marshmallow Leprechaun hat from your box of Lucky Charms. I mean who DOESN’T pick out the marshmallows and eat them first, right? Put it on the top of the cookie with frosting.
Cut up triangles and rectangles from the Fruit Roll-Ups for the ears and bow tie. Twist the rectangle for the bow tie.
Add the ears and bow tie with frosting. Draw on the mouth and whiskers with the black edible marker.
