Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here's a great cookie recipe, from our kitchen to yours, on this blustery St. Patrick's Day. Super easy with just a few ingredients, they practically make themselves. We recommend a plates of these with some Irish coffee on a lazy Sunday like today! Yum!

Mint Butter Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 c confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
1 3/4 + 2 tablespoons flour
green sanding sugar

Cream the butter in a mixer until light-colored and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat together. Add extract. Gradually add the flour and mix well. Scoop out tablespoons full of dough and roll into balls. Space 1" apart on cookie sheets. Flatten a little with the bottom of a glass dipped in green sugar. Refridgerate for at least a half hour, then bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, rotating halfway through. Cool on a rack, then enjoy!
