Savoury shamrock snacks for St Patricks Day


As well as doing arts and crafts activities together, we also enjoy baking together. Today we are sharing our recipe for Savoury Shamrocks, which make an ideal playdate or party snack to enjoy on St Patrick’s Day.

Baking with more than one child children is not without its challenges, but with careful preparation, this is a great activity to do at home at with your children. Before you begin set out all of the ingredients and try to make sure there is an equal division of jobs throughout the activity. My 5year old is a stickler for everything being exactly equal between himself and his siblings!

How to make Savoury Shamrock Snacks


200g self-raising flour

50g butter, softened

100-125ml of milk

50g cheese grated

Tomato puree

Dried Oregano


Rolling Pin

Shamrock Cutter

Baking Tray

Baking Paper


Pre heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.

Add the flour and butter into a mixing bowl and rub together until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Gradually pour in the milk and mix together to form a stiff dough. Gently knead for a minute or two.

Dust some flour over the surface and then carefully roll out your dough.

Use the shamrock cutter to cut out the shapes for your Savoury Shamrock Snacks and place them onto a lined baking tray.
