Football Cookies

This update is way late, but I wanted to share it anyway! I had taken 3 cake classes by the time the Superbowl came around this year and I wanted to share my creative skills I had learned. I had found a cookie cutter set from asking around on the "What's Cooking?" board of TheNest and it included a football shaped cookie cutter!! It also came with letters of the alphabet, so I took my creative side a little farther using the letter cutters. I will have to come back and add the recipe since I didn't write it down. It was in a Better Homes and Garden cookbook I received at my Bridal Shower this past fall. I love it!

Sugar Cookie Recipe
Recipe: Better Homes and Garden Cookbook

I made the cookies according to the recipe in the book, and decorated them using my [cake] class buttercream icing colored appropriately.
They were a lot easier to make than I thought they'd be, and everyone LOVED them. We didn't come home with any extra cookies, which surprised me because there wasn't a huge crowd at the party, but hey, less calories for me!
They took the longest time to decorate, but I had my Sunday afternoon available so I sat down at our kitchen table, and got to work!

Those cookies look yummy! Where did you get your cookie cutters from?

I got them at my local Walmart actually. I think it was a set of 100 cookie cutters for $10. There are all kinds of shapes-trucks, holiday shapes, flowers, circles, letters, numbers etc...
