According to my Erin Go Bragh(kovich) poll, readers' top three St. Patrick's Day cookie ingredients were Bailey's Irish Cream, McCann's Irish oatmeal, and Guinness, followed closely by green food coloring and Jameson whiskey. I guess the results aren't too surprising, but I don't know if I can do a cookie with three kinds of alcohol in it. Then again...maybe I can.
Poor little currants didn't get a single vote. Whenever I think of scones or Irish soda bread, currants are one of the default mix-ins. I'll bring them in somehow, even though they scored a big 0.0%. Maybe I'll enplumpen 'em with some booze.
I'm going to come up with St. Patrick's Day cookies for the drinkers and nondrinkers alike. Here's a hint: I'll be putting the tea back in teetotaler
