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!!!
