Pistachio Shamrock Cookies

Updated on January 30, 2012

I have had this recipe for many years and have made these cookies often for St.Patrick's Day celebrations. They look festive, are easy to make and good to eat. They have the green color and flavor of the pistachio pudding plus , the sweetness of the green icing. I hope you enjoy them.
