Very Lucky St Patrick’s Day Cookies

Friends, get ready for the cutest and easiest recipe for festive St. Patrick’s Day Cookies!! I love a dessert to get my family into the holiday spirit and these cookies are so simple I truly enjoyed having my kids along to help! No matter how you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, these cookies will make the perfect addition to your festivities and the Spring 2022 Pedestal is the perfect accessory to display any and all desserts!

Lucky charms cereal, cookie dough

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 Egg

1/2 cup Vegan butter

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp Baking soda

1 tsp Cream of tartar

1/4 tsp Salt, coarse

1/2 cup Sugar

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1 cup Lucky Charms Cereal marshmallows

 

Cookie dough mix in bowl, lucky charms in bowl, scoop out the cookie dough

 

Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350 degrees and get out your ingredients. My kids have never had Lucky Charms before so I knew this was going to be fun for them. Macey (4.5) and Harrison (2.5) sat up at the counter and helped me with the next, most important, step: sorting out the marshmallows from the cereal! Have your kids pick out the marshmallows and set them aside, you’ll need about a cup. While they were doing that I added the dry ingredients together (flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar). Whisk those together well. Then in a separate bowl combine sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla. Once both bowls are mixed thoroughly, combine them into one bowl. Finally, mix in your cup of marshmallows! Keep a few marshmallows off to the side to add to the top of the warm cookies after they bake!

I then scooped the dough into 1” balls and placed it directly on a baking sheet (non-greased) about an inch or two apart. This recipe makes about 12 balls.

Once you take the cookies out and they look done, add a few of your marshmallows to the top to finish! Let cool, then enjoy! 


I’ve styled mine in a fun way on the spring pedestal tray! I love how they pop off the deep wood color - so fun!
