Claddagh Cookies, decorated nine ways!

Ah, the claddagh. If you're not familiar with it, the claddagh is an Irish symbol for Love, Loyalty, and Friendship. You'll most often see a claddagh on rings.

[NOTE: I just could not decide how to decorate this cookie, so I decorated it nine different ways! Ha. I'll show you how.]

how to decorate Irish claddagh ring cookies

There was a time in my life when I went through a big claddagh ring phase. I think I was in my late teens/early twenties. I always had that ring on. The tradition goes that you turn the heart outward if you're single, and towards yourself if you're taken. I felt like I'd always be the single girl with my ring turned out. ;)

(This site has some really pretty claddagh rings, and now I think I need one again...gold this time, please, and turned inward.)

Guinness-Vanilla Bean Frosted Mocha Brownies

I posted these brownies last summer, but you know what? You need them for St. Patrick's Day.
NEED THEM. 

Here they are again, with plenty of time for you to get your Irish on...

Guinness-Vanilla Bean Frosted Mocha Brownies
These brownies have been rattling around in my head for a while now. Beer + brownies ...what took me so long?!?

Guinness-Vanilla Bean Frosted Mocha Brownies
Since Guinness has those lovely coffee notes, I decided to go for mocha brownies. The result? A rich, fudgy, espresso-spiked brownie slathered with a thick layer of luscious vanilla and Guinness frosting. The beer in the frosting smells divine and tastes even better.

If only I could order a pint of Guinness frosting at our local watering hole!
