Have some fun with these adorable St. Patricks Day Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies!
You are going to want to stuff your mouth with these adorable little green clover cookies- I’m warning you right now, St. Patricks Day Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies are addictive and so fun to make. Yes, you will need a cookie press to make these, but there are lots out there and you are guaranteed to find one or more different types at your local craft store. If not, here’s a link to purchase the one I love using. It’s made by the OXO brand, which engineers innovative kitchen tools that feel great in your hand and are easy to use.
The dough for St. Patricks Day Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies is simple enough- just cream together softened butter, cream cheese, sugar, an egg yolk, vanilla and lots and lots of green food coloring.
Once that’s thoroughly combined, gradually mix in your flour and salt, and try really hard not to eat this dough (because it’s sooo good, but you know, the whole ‘raw egg thing’…).
Then load it up into your cookie press and go to town! Get kids involved if there are any nearby, they will love using the cookie press, and you will too!
Bake them for just 12-14 minutes and you have adorable St. Patricks Day Cream Cheese Spritz Cookies.
Here they are cooling on a wire rack.
And here they are sprinkled with green sugar. I meant to press some of it into the cookies before they went into the oven, but I totally forgot, I was having too much fun with the cookie press. Enjoy and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!Print
