I frosted these happy little shamrocks with a mixture of evaporated milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar. The only problem with how soft they are is that they break easily... and what's a girl to do but eat them?!

Seriously, they are so soft and yummy. I have tried out several sugar cookie recipes, but this one is the best by far. They stay soft forever... At least as long as I can keep from eating them all! And the recipe is easy-peasy. Don't believe me?! Try it out!!
Softest Sugar Cookies Around
1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
3 tsp. baking powder
3 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. vanilla
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Chill 1 hour. Roll and cut.
Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes.
** For extra softness, store cookies with a piece of bread in an airtight container. **
I made these little bags tonight for the ladies I visit teach. I want to go drop them off tomorrow. I made this bag topper in Photoshop and folded it over a ziplock bag.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
PS It's also my half-birthday today, too. Yes... my half-birthday.
