Shamrock Cookie Cutter for St Patricks Day

Shamrock Cookie Cutter St Patricks Day DIY

St Patrick’s Day is fast approaching and this year I really wanted to make some shamrock cookies. It’s not often you get to make green goodies to eat!

I couldn’t find a shamrock cookie cutter in any of my local stores, so I decided to make my own and discovered with a few items from around the kitchen, a fun cookie cutter is really easy to make. The kids will really love helping you make these for a St Patrick’s Day morning tea.

Let’s get started with materials…

Step 1: Cut the sides off one of your disposable aluminum baking trays and cut the bottom into 1 inch strips.

Step 2: Twist one of the strips to start making your shamrock shape. The aluminum is soft enough to twist and bend, but strong enough to hold its shape.

Step 3: Add more strips to your shape by simply stapling the strips together.

Step 4: Once you are happy with your shape, staple the open ends to together to hold the shamrock shape in place.

Step 5: Roll out your cookie dough and use your new cookie cutter to cut the shapes. Load up your other aluminum tray and bake your cookies following the recipe.

Step 6: Once your shamrock cookies are cool, ice with green icing and top with green sprinkles.
