    Preparation

    1. MAKE shamrocks. With the peel still on, slice four slices (¼-inch thick) from the sides of the whole avocado. Remove seed from center section and slice the avocado in half lengthwise. Peel slices. Using a small shamrock-shaped cookie cutter, cut shamrock-shaped avocado pieces for each cracker. Cover surface with plastic wrap so avocado doesn’t discolor; set aside.

    2. PLACE remaining avocado in a small bowl and stir in pickles. Spread avocado mixture on each cracker.

    3. TOP with two squares of corned beef, then an avocado shamrock. Serve.
