I have been wanting to try this recipe for a while. I have seen it on numerous blogs all stating that these cookies are supposed to taste like those big frosted sugar cookies you see at the grocery store. I know, cookies from the store are supposed to be bad, but how many people out there have never tried one of these? For me, when my kids were younger, they were always the thing I would pick up from the store when my kids were supposed to take refreshments to something, but I didn't have time to bake. After all, the kids seemed to love them, and if I were lucky there would be one left over for me. So, when I was looking for something to make for St. Patrick's Day, I knew these would be perfect - after all, they are supposed to have colored icing and sprinkles, right. These cookies do really taste very much like the store bought version, but they are better - more buttery and maybe a little less sweet. I will warn you that having them around can be dangerous, so you might want to make them when you have plenty of people around to eat them. My husband is used to me wanting to get my baked treats out of the house so I won't eat them, so he has offered to take them to work, but I haven't said yes yet. I keep thinking that I might just want one more!
