    I love shortbread cookies because they aren’t too sweet and crunchy. Your recipe looks great! What’s a good meltable dark chocolate you like?

    Hi Erica, I love Ghiradelli chocolate and use it for pretty much everything!

    I love Irish Soda Bread, my mom has made is since I was a wee one! She always stuck a little Irish flag on top…it’s yummy!

    The Shamrock Cookies are so cute!


  12. Christine Rogers on March 16, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    Can you give me a good sugar cookie frosting recipe? Mine never turns out smooth and lovely like on your shamrock cookies. It either runs off the side and never fully dries, or is too stiff and doesn’t flow right. Help!

    Great looking St. Patty’s Day recipes!! I’m hoping to have an all green breakfast tomorrow:)

    Such a great assortment! I’m a total sucker for shortbread, so I think I’m going to have to try out your chocolate dipped shortbread recipe this weekend. My 3-year-old just saw the picture of the shamrock cookies and said, “Ooooh, I need dat!” 🙂
