Lucky Lime Rolls
It's March! Can you believe it? I can almost taste spring as we speak! Even better, daylight savings is only in a couple of weeks. That means the days will feel longer - woohoo! It hasn't been that bad of a winter, but I'm ready for warmer weather. I'm especially ready to get our garden going. I've missed it these last six or so months. So what's say we kick of the month with a St. Patrick's Day recipe? This one is super simple (with step by step photos) and the whole family will enjoy these shamrocks. They are even more fun because they come with a 'dipping sauce' we all know how much more fun a food is to eat when it has a dipping sauce! Let's get started shall we?
Place on a sprayed baking sheet (or Silpat lined), separating the leaves so they don't touch...which is kind of hard, just do your best! Roll the cut off piece into a stem and dip it in butter and sugar mixture and place under the center of the shamrock.
