Looking for St. Patrick's Day treat ideas? Try this Lucky Charms cookie recipe. It's simple to make and a fun treat for your family or use for a class party or other celebration.

St. Patrick's Day is another fun holiday for kids. My kids used to make a Leprechaun trap each year, but they never did manage to catch him or get his pot of gold.

We wear the green stuff and have some cutesy themed foods for the holiday, and they love this Lucky Charms cookie recipe.

I mean, it's Lucky Charms. That's the best cereal no matter what time of the year!

You can buy Lucky Charms cookie dough, but it's expensive. You can easily make your own Lucky Charms treat recipe for a lot less money!

I used butter to make my St. Patrick's Day cookies. Shortening doesn't have any water in it, so there's no water to evaporate during cooking.

This helps your cookies hold their shape. This also gives you a softer cookie.

However, butter gives cookies a rich buttery flavor. Using butter usually results in a slightly flatter cookie, and it might spread a little.

You can get the best of both worlds and use half shortening and half butter.

You can pick the marshmallows out of a box of cereal or just buy a bag of the marshmallows to use.

Bread flour is best for a chewy cookie. However, I use all purpose flour or about half an half all purpose flour and bread flour.
