Last year I made THESE for St. Patrick's Day. The kids didn't care for the lime flavor...which I really like...So I went with the following for our Cookie Monday Cookie....
FOR ST. PATRICKS DAY!
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4-5 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
Optional: food coloring and flavoring
Cream together the margarine and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Then add dry ingredients. Add food coloring a few drops at a time til you get the color you want. Add a tsp of flavoring if desired (mint/almond/orange). Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
**This recipe came from my Mom. Without flavoring, the cookies do have a yummy butter flavor. Mix and match food coloring with coordinating flavors.
