When I was making my cutout shamrock cookies I decided to glaze some with green, and some with chocolate. I added mint extract to the chocolate. After I was done glazing them, I made a few "sandwich" cookies. I added more powdered sugar to the glaze, and frosted between the shamrocks, and put them together, adding green sprinkles, of course.. They turned out very well, don't you think?
