Happy Monday my friends! We are in our last week of St. Patrick’s Food and Fun, I hope you have enjoyed it so far. We have lots of delicious recipes, dinner ideas, fun for the kids and of course, St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes for you this week, so stay tuned!

I’m brightening your day today with these green ombre St. Patrick’s Day Cookies! One of the Rainbow Recipes I had on my list and didn’t get a chance to bake, were these Rainbow Cookies. So, I thought it would be fun to change it up a little and simply color them green for St. Patrick’s Day. They used store bought sugar cookie dough, but I used one of my favorite Sugar Cookie Recipes that has almond extract in it.

After they were cooled, I dipped the edge in white chocolate and added a few green jimmie sprinkles. I think these would also be fun for Valentine’s Day or even Halloween. Or maybe some fun March Madness cookies with your favorite team colors!

After mixing up the dough, you will need to color it. I used Wilton leaf green coloring, divided the dough into 4 parts and colored each a little darker. Cover the counter with a piece of wax paper, and knead the coloring in until well blended.

  1. Roll a small ball {I used a 2 tablespoon cookie dough scoop} of each color
  2. Place the balls together and roll another ball
  3. Roll into a cylinder about 8 inches long
  4. Coil the dough, twisting the rope as you go {this step was a little tricky, and took me a few times} The dough may break, I just pushed it back together

Once the cookies are formed, place on a greased cookie sheet and bake {see recipe below}
