St. Patrick’s Day Treats!

A green cookie on St. Patrick’s Day is a must, especially when you get creative with how you make it. Grab a dozen Snickerdoodle and Lemon Drop cookies and smother them in some delicious cream cheese that is dyed green for the occasion. No words, it is just simply delicious!

If cream cheese isn’t enough to satisfy your cookie craving, ice cream is another great alternative to thematically spice up your cookie for St. Patrick’ Day. My favorite combination is taking two warm Dr. Midnight cookies and throwing in an enormous scoop of pistachio ice cream.

Tip: Warm your cookies in the microwave to get that savory texture!

A good gift should have at three parts to it because who doesn’t love more surprises?  Shay’s Flowers right on 411 Cedar St has a beautiful selection of flowers whose aroma you simply can’t resist.
