Beautiful, Hand-Decorated St. Patrick’s Day Cutout Cookies

Saint Patrick’s Day is right around and corner and lucky you, you don’t have to be Irish to enjoy our delightful holiday treats!

We have our beautiful, hand-decorated shamrock cutout cookies made out of sweet buttery shortbread in a variety of styles plus a new twist! We bring you our chocolate shortbread half- dipped in chocolate. You won’t be able to resist these festive treats.

 

Headed out to the Chicago Southside Irish parade this weekend? Treat your family and friends to some shamrocks or leprechaun hats that we can also individually bag and bow so you don’t have to worry about packaging. They make the cutest little gifts and you will be the hero of the parade! The shamrocks come in mini too so why not hand them out if you happen to be a walker at the parade? Start a new tradition this year that will be sure to last.

 

Speaking of traditions.. The Chicago Southside Irish parade originated in Morgan Park where it continues to be held to this day. The parade began on the Southside in 1979 by two friends, George Hendry and Pat Coakley  who decided to create their own parade since the original is held downtown and there is a very heavy Irish population in the Beverly-Morgan Park are.  The first parade marchers consisted of their wives and children. Others started to notice the small gathering so in 1980 the parade moved from the sidewalks to side streets and began at Kennedy Park. Three hundred people marched that year. Now the parade consists of high schools, political figures, Girl Scout troops, the Jessie White Tumblers and so many more and is easily one of the most look-forwarded to events in the Chicagoland area. Authorities have cracked down a bit on parade rules and standards and even shortened the route but that doesn’t stop anyone. So again, make the parade even better with our adorable mini shamrocks or large leprechaun hats and make your own tradition!

 

Not a parade-goer? No problem! You’ll make anyone green with envy if you bring these goodies into the office. Share with your employees, coworkers and friends and “Taste a little happiness” this Saint Patrick’s Day.
