A Pot of Gold- Cookies and Milk
For a St. Patrick's Day treat I made rainbow cookies and attached them to a pot of gold! The gold was actually milk tinted with a bit of yellow food coloring and the pot was a cauldron that had come filled with cold coins (that I used for the rainbow snack). I got the idea for rainbow cookies hanging on a cup from the cookie shop- whose cookies sure did look a whole lot neater than mine.
In the interest of full disclosure I should mention that my first batch of cookies really were entirely too soft to use, and we had to ditch the treat for St. Patrick's day and instead enjoyed it the day after. I cooked the rest of the cookies for longer and they turned out harder, though still not really sturdy. I think next time I would stick with my regular sugar cookie dough recipe.
I think these little treats would look so cute lined up for a St. Patrick's day party!
