Shamrock Shortbread Cookies

Just liked shaped mac ‘n cheese, cookies are better when they’re in cute little shapes! My dad never misses a holiday when it comes to cookies and his St. Patty’s day cookies are always my one of my favorites. They’re green, covered in chocolate, and photograph well. If you’re not a fan of mint feel free to leave out the mint extract. Test out these shortbread cookies and don’t forget to dip them in chocolate!
