Football Cookies

It’s been awhile but I’m going to try to start posting on here again from time to time. I will try to do some short posts on different things we are trying at home. No promises on consistency though!

Yesterday was Superbowl Sunday. I was feeling festive so I made football cookies!

Over Christmas I reconnected with roll-out cookies. We made them with our toddler who loved the process. And I realized that they are not as hard as I thought! We had so much fun making the Christmas cookies that we decided we should make cookies for all the holidays. (It’s also a good way to go over shapes with your kid.)

I thought that Valentine’s Day would be the next holiday but last weekend I remembered I had a football cookie cutter. I was going to make regular sugar cookies and ice them brown but then I thought, why not chocolate sugar cookies? It would save me some work and I could try something new.

A quick search provided lots of options and I ended up going with:

Brownie Roll-Out Cookies at Smitten Kitchen

Then I made a half batch of basic buttercream frosting and piped on the lines using a sandwich bag with the corner snipped off. I didn’t even use half of that so you could get away with a quarter batch of frosting. Just add a bit more milk than usual so it pipes easily.

I got about 3 dozen cookies out of the recipe and I was very happy with how they turned out, both in taste and appearance. These would also be fun for a kid’s party!
