Cookies added 2-21-99 Original Author Unknown

Use refrigerated sugar cookie dough -- put in a ziplock bag with a few drops of green food coloring -- let the children squish it around until all the food coloring is blended -- refrigerate for 20 minutes or so (because their little hands warm up the dough too much) Roll it out and use a large shamrock cookie cutter to cut out cookies -- bake! While the cookies are baking -- soften vanilla ice cream and smooth out in a pan to about 1/2 thickness - refreeze -- cut same size shamrocks from the ice cream -- when the cookies are completely cooled - make ice cream sandwiches with the cookies and ice cream.
