It is pretty special that I have a holiday with my name. Yes, St. Patty’s day is right around the corner and when I was a little girl my sisters would call me Patrick too. These cookies are very simple, and can be used for really any holiday or event. I also like that it is decorated with colored sugar instead of an icing. Now, another favorite idea for St. Patty’s Day I wrote about a while back. I still think it is a brilliant idea, thanks again Mrs. Frost.

8 oz. Softened Cream Cheese

2 Sticks of Butter

1 Egg (separated)

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla

¼ Cup of Sugar

1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder

½ Teaspoon of Salt

2 Cups of Flour

Colored Sugar

Preheat 350

With an electric mixer beat until fluffy the butter and cream cheese followed by adding the egg yolk, vanilla, and sugar. On low speed or by hand with a spoon; mix in the flour, baking powder, and the salt. Form the dough into a ball and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Roll dough out on a floured surface to about ¼ inch. Cut into your desired shapes. Brush the cookie with egg white and cover with colored sugar. Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes.
