18 cookies


  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 (3 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix

  • 1 ⅓ cups baking mix

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.

  2. Beat butter and pistachio pudding mix in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Blend in baking mix, egg, and sugar to form a dough.

  3. Roll dough on a lightly floured surface to 3/8-inch thickness; cut out cookies with a shamrock cookie cutter. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, about 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet briefly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.


If you have time, chill the dough for at least 30 minutes to make it easier to roll and cut out.
