St. Patrick’s Day Cookies For Leprechaun Lovers
Take a bite of these St. Patrick’s Day cookies! I’ve got loads of recipes you can choose from. There's even a no bake recipe in the list!
I’m celebrating St. Patrick’s with a whole dessert tray of my favorite cookies. I love keeping in theme during special occasions, and St. Patrick’s day isn't exempted when it comes to going all out on the festivities. It’s the one day when you can go crazy with green food coloring, mint flavors, and so much more! Here's a roundup of some of my favorite St. Patrick's Day cookies!
1. Double-Decker Rainbow Shamrock Cookies
There's something about these double-decker rainbow shamrock cookies that make me (and my tummy) happy! By the way, you can choose to put either a shamrock or a pot of gold as the upper layer of the cookie. It's all up to you!
2. Mint Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches
This minty and chocolatey treat would look perfect on your St Patrick's day dessert table. The secret to making these cookies is a pack of wafer cookies you can use straight out of the box.
3. Green Chocolate Chip Cookies
Let's go green on a fresh batch of yummy chocolate chip cookies! Although this recipe doesn't call for mint chocolate, they can simply be added in if you'd prefer.
4. Andes Mint Thumbprint Cookies
They're not only elegant-looking, but they're also easy to make. Each chocolate-mint thumbprint is adorned with a piece of creme de menthe chocolate candy that adds another layer of texture and sweetness to the cookie.
5. Green Tea and White Chocolate Cookies
Are you a fan of both green tea and white chocolate? Then you should try this dessert idea. Whether served in a party or given as a gift, everyone will love receiving them. When baking with matcha, always remember to use ones that come in a beautiful green color. The dull green ones are usually of a lower quality and don't taste as nice.

6. Polka Dot and Plaid Shamrock Cookies
7. Rainbow Slice-and-Bake Cookies
They say a leprechaun’s pot of gold is hidden at the end of the rainbow. When you take a bite of these colorful cookies, you'll definitely feel like you hit the jackpot. I suggest using gel food coloring for this recipe, since a little goes a long way.
8. Leprechaun Cookies
These colorful Leprechaun cookies look cute and charming! Here's a tip for drawing the leprechaun faces: Outline the face, the eyes, and the hat first, then leave it for 30 minutes to an hour to dry. After waiting, you can then proceed with filling in the beard and the hatband. Wait another 30 minutes and then fill in the rest of the hat. Leave the batch to rest overnight and put in the finishing details the morning after.
9. Mint Cookie Bark
This mint cookie bark has been known to completely sell out at bake fairs. But then again, who can resist little bags of these delectable treats? What makes this recipe so easy to make is how there are only three ingredients: Mint Oreo cookies, Vanilla Candiquik coating, and green sprinkles.
10. St Patrick’s Day Golden Oreos
I can be a serial snacker, so I usually have a pack or two of Oreos stocked in the pantry. For St. Patrick’s day, I’m planning on whipping a batch of these colorfully green golden Oreos. Don’t they look so chic decked in sprinkles and drizzles?
