St. Patrick’s Day “Luck of the Irish” Homemade Oreos

stpatoreo2

 

So I have a confession; I am not Irish. Not even close to being Irish.

The closest I get is that I like beer and boys with Irish accents.  Soooo basically I’m American. And 25 years old.

 

But we all know that the whole ‘not being remotely related to this holiday’ thing would never stand in my way. Give me green. A couple sticks of butter. And let me get to work!

I knew I wanted something simple and easy – because when you’re baking cookies for your kid’s class party, office friends, or holiday get together; you want to look like Martha Stewart but cook like Betty Crocker. The cookies and the frosting whip up pretty quick, the only extra step is using cookie cutters right when the cookies come out of the oven and piping the frosting. Pretty pretty easy guys!

 

If you don’t have alphabet cookie cutters  you can definitely leave that step out! Green oreos are just as festive :) Plus you can switch up the colors and tailor these to whatever holiday you want… pink for Easter.. red white & blue for the 4th… I only found half the alphabet hiding in my horribly disorganized baking cabinet – so voila! Spelled “Lucky” using a rotated “U” for the “C”.

 

Happy St. Patty’s Day everyone!!

    Would it taste weird if I use whole wheat pastry flour? I love this recipe but I dont have enough all purpose!

    • Whipped Baking says:

      They’ll definitely be a bit different tasting, more earthier and a lot denser. I don’t usually recommend using only whole wheat flour in a recipe because sometimes it can make baked goods too heavy, but it’s always good to experiment! There’s a lot of chocolate in this recipe to cover up the whole wheat flavor so this might be an instance where it works :)
