1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Green Icing:
13 drops green food color
2-3 teaspoons milk
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Combine remaining cookie ingredients and slowly add to butter mixture.

2. Chill dough. Roll to 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured surface and cut dough with shamrock cookie cutter. Bake on greased baking sheet 8-10 minutes or until light brown. Cool cookies completely on wire racks before decorating with green icing.

3. Icing: Mix 13 drops of green food color with milk. Combine with confectioners' sugar, stirring until color is evenly distributed and icing is smooth. You may sprinkle cookies with green sugar.
