These cookies were a total fluke. Seriously. I was originally making “gold coin cookies”.
. . .
Please don’t make explain that idea. As you can imagine, it definitely did not work. Still trying to think in terms of St. Patty’s Day, my mind then went to rainbow sprinkle cookies. Those did not work either. In part because I’ve used all of my yellow and green sprinkles for U of O-inspired projects and couldn’t quite make a rainbow. I love my Ducks! And need to buy more sprinkles so I can continue to support my love for them.
Anyways, eventually I went completely crazy with failed-cookie frustration, broke my remaining dough into four balls, and dyed them each insanely bright colors. Then I rolled the dough balls out and twisted them together.
Then I rolled up the twisty string of dough, broke off chunks, then threw ’em on a cookie sheet with the failed experiments.
Then I baked ’em up. And this is what I got.
And you know what? I’m so glad that I completely lost my wits on this one. Because I think these look super cool! Or maybe I should say totally groovy.
I’m sorry. I maybe still haven’t quite regained those whits that I had lost.
Enjoy these chewy, delicious treats for St. Patrick’s Day!
