Of course it is not St.Patrick's day does it mean we should not make these cookies and eat it..,Well for something Green for St.Patrick's day she had made these, as she says you need not be an Irish to celebrate this day nor there is any excuse to celebrate festival days right ?. When I went searching in her blog for recipes, My eyes caught these cookies, I got hooked to these cookies as they had minty flavour and which I had never tried this before, I was a bit scared how my kids would like it, but they really liked it :)), I was a happy mother. As you can see I did not use too much green colour in it. so you would definitely see the difference in our cookies..
