Super Bowl Thoughts...in Cookie Form

 Super Bowl Thoughts...in Cookie Form: super bowl, football decorated cookies
The Super Bowl is Sunday. Only because my husband grew up in San Francisco do I know that the 49ers are playing. Baseball? Yes. College football? Yes. The NFL? Not my jam. I watch the Super Bowl for two reasons: the food that comes along with it and the commercials. 

So, these are my Super Bowl thoughts...in cookie form.

I'm just here for the food: super bowl cookies
I'm just here for the food.

Did we DVR the Kitten Bowl? (Oh, please tell me that you watch the Kitten Bowl on the Hallmark Channel. Sometimes, I put it on just for the kitties' viewing pleasure, and they LOVE it.)

A few tips for making these: 

  • here's the cut-out cookie recipe, I rolled these to 3/8"
  • here's the royal icing recipe
  • colors used: Americolor Chocolate Brown, Bright White, Leaf Green + Laurel, and Egg Yellow
  • the "sayings" cookies were outlined using a #3 tip
  • the roses were piped using a small star tip and finished with a small leaf tip
  • the footballs were made using a #4 tip

I'm a little in love with those little footballs. I used a #4 tip, just squeezing with more pressure in the center to make a football shape. The laces were added with a #1 tip.

To add a little definition to the football cookies, I outlined the cookies with a dividing line down the center. I filled in the bottom section with flood icing, then let it dry for an hour or so. I added a little white flood icing to the brown flood icing, stirred gently, then flooded the top with that. The color isn't much different, but it adds some dimension.

I have to know...what are you making for the Super Bowl. I haven't decided. Nachos? Burgers? Chili? Queso? Jalapeno poppers? Pizza? 7-layer dip? Tacos????????? Ah, all the choices!!!

  1. Love this post. We are a sports household, all sports. But I agree, when our team (Packers) doesn't make it to the big game...all I care about is the food & commercials also. Love the way you "changed up" the football cookie, I will definitely have to try that the next time I make them.

  2. Cute! I love football, Chiefs all the way! I wish I had time to make these before but it's not happening this weekend. I don't know what I'm making yet for the game, but I have to bring dessert. I'm still trying to figure out something I can do that is quick and I can make it red and yellow.

  6. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/
