My family used to have a "boiled" dinner every St. Patricks Day, but I was never fond of it, so we now have corned beef ( done in the oven) and cole slaw instead of boiled cabbage.  There is always enough left over for corned beef sandwiches, and even the cole slaw lasts.

We don't have a favorite food. I love corned beef but my husband does not.
My twin girls were born on the 15th so we celebrate that instead of the 17th.

A cookie? - surely you don't mean just one!

Do you ever make spritz cookies (cookie press)?  The dough can be colored and the shape can reflect the holiday.
They are my go-to cookies for any holiday.  Quick and super good too!
But I would not stop with a cookie (they are small after all)

Frances --- I'm trying to sound good. 
Many years ago I owned a cookie press and I did not make one cookie I liked.  Frown   I think I want cookies that contain, nuts, chips, coconut, fruit, crushed candy, junk ---  I can't settle for a plain cookie - lol

Nancy, next time try making a shortbread cookie.  It is "plain" but the taste is heavenly.  The best ones are buttery and have a nice crumb to them.  I love them dipped in Ganache...oops you don't make ganache yet .  If you want nuts can be added as well as crystallized ginger.
I like Shortbread cookies better than "Spritz" cookies.

I don't care for the St. Paddy's Day traditional menu, except for cabbage, and my husband doesn't really care what he has. So I'm making meatloaf. lol

We have corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, Irish Soda Bread, and friends to celebrate my husband's birthday, since he was born on March 18. (We don't eat the friends, just have them with us to celebrate the birthday)Laughing
