Football Stadium Cookies

how to make football stadium decorated cookies ... such a cute addition to a football cookie platter!

I take no credit for this idea. Zero, nada.

Sometimes it's hard to trace a cookie idea back to the creator. Sometimes two people have the same idea for a cookie at the same time. It's true! It's happened to me...many times! These little stadium cookies with the sprinkle fans? Well...in 2012, Lizy B made them, then Sue from Munchkin Munchies (along with the cutest footballs), then Ali Bee, then Sweet Sugarbelle.

I know there must be hundreds more examples online, but y'all...this is all of the cookie sleuthing I have time for. Let me just throw out a thank you to an early 1960's housewive decorating cookies in a day dress and pearls, making these cookies with no blog or Instagram to document it. Thank you, Betty! (Her name is Betty. Betty Draper. OK, maybe not.)

So, let me walk you through how I made these to go along with the Texas A&M cookie set. One thing I love about them is that they really add a burst of color to the collection.


Now, while I do looooove the look of the multicolored nonpareils, if I had planned ahead, I might have bought them in the school colors.

To make the stadium cookies, you'll need:

Use a #2 tip to outline and section off the cookies with white icing. 

Reserve some of the white piping consistency icing before thinning the rest. 

Thin the white icing with water, a bit at a time. Stir gently with a spatula until the icing is thick and smooth, and a ribbon of icing dropped back onto itself disappears in a count of "one-thousand-one, one-thousand-two." If the icing is too thin, don't use it - it won't dry well. Stir in more sifted powdered sugar to thicken.

Cover the icing with a damp dish towel and let rest for a few minutes. Stir gently to remove any large air bubbles and pour into squeeze bottles. Fill in the outer sections, leaving the middles open. Use a toothpick to guide to edges and pop air bubbles.

Pour the nonpareils over the wet icing. Let it set for several minutes before shaking off the excess, so the icing doesn't slosh around too much.

Thin the green icing as described above. Fill in the middle section. Let dry for at least one hour.

Use a #2 tip to add yard lines on the green. Switch the tip to a #1 and add the yard numbers. (Don't feel obligated to do the entire field. Just a section is fine.) 

Let the cookies dry uncovered, 6-8 hours, or overnight.
