I have a confession to make

I have no idea who’s playing in the Super Bowl this weekend. I didn’t even know that it was two words – I had to look that up. I know one team may be the Seahawks because I’ve been seeing lots of amazing Super Bowl cookies on Facebook and Instagram lately. And the other team has Manning? Does that sound right? He’s pretty amazing on SNL.

So yes, I may not love football all that much. But you know what? I come for the food. Because I heart food. And planning out some tasty dishes for Super Bowl Sunday is what’s up for me.

And I’ll have tasty football cookies. So no one can be really upset that I’m not paying attention to the game – right? 😉

And I’ve bundled them up because ladies and gents, it’s been a heck of a winter. Especially here in MI.

A few tips if you’re going to attempt these cookies:

  • Start by outlining and flooding the brown of the football, but leave room for the hat.
  • When your brown icing is fairly dry and you’re ready to start icing your hat, pipe the bottom of the hat first. Wait 20 minutes or so, then pipe and flood the rest of the hat. This will give your cookie some dimension.
  • I piped the eyes with a #2, but did the rest of the details with a #1 – it really helped with the finer details.
  • When adding the details, pipe the bottom white line first, then the laces. Having those piped first will help you when placing the eyes and mouths.
