For St. Patrick’s–Irish Soda Bread Cookies???

Cookies are not traditional for St. Patrick’s Day and I found this interesting recipe at allrecipes.com.

I have not made these cookies but felt compelled to share for the holiday.

In all honesty, I think I’d rather have Irish Soda Bread and skip any cookies for this day, but the reader reviews are positive.

IRISH SODA BREAD COOKIES

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup dried currants
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon caraway seed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in currants.

Mix in beaten egg. Pour in milk and mix with a fork to make a soft dough (may need a little more milk).

On a floured surface, shape dough into a ball and knead lightly 5 or 6 times. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into squares and triangles with a knife (approximately 2 inches in diameter).

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until slightly browned.
