Football Cookies

SuperBowl parties bring out the best mood in people.  How many Sundays during the year do you get to hang out with a bunch of your friends?  Here is a recipe to do more with less so you can maximize hang time AND get people fired up with your creative dish!

This no sweat recipe is all about paying homage to the legendary Ray Finkle! We’re talkin about Football shaped cookies with the LACES OUT!!!

Ingredients: Yields 6-8

  • 1 tube of gingerbread cookie dough
  • Powdered sugar
  • Royal icing


Rub the powdered sugar on your cooking space and rolling pin so the dough does not stick to either.  Cut the cookie tube into 6 coins.  Roll out the dough so that the cookie cutter can fit.  Punch the cutter through the dough and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Repeat until all dough is used.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 and put the baking sheet on the top rack for 8-10 minutes.  The cookies expand in the oven so space accordingly.

You don’t have to make your icing… you can buy the Royal Icing and you should!  Let the bottle of icing sit in a bowl of hot water so the icing will work smoothly as you pipe in the laces.  Once the cookies cool and icing is warmed up (about 10 mins) start to draw on your laces with the icing.  Give the icing some time to harden and you’re done.  That’s right, DONE!! Now you have Football cookies with the LACES OUT!!
